CES 2007: LG's US Chocolate and enV phones (we're a bit jealous)

Unsurprisingly, LG are saving their big news for tomorrow’s press conference so there’s not much to say about their new stuff, but today we were given a chance to see some of the exclusive products that haven’t made it to our side of the Atlantic, and to be honest, we’re a bit jealous. First was a chance to compare the US version of the chocolate phone (left) to the UK model (middle). Our Yank counterparts get a bigger touchpad and more colour variations, but it’s much chunkier than our version and lacks the sleekness the phone is famous for. We also got our grubby mitts on the enV, LG’s latest smartphone (right), and were very impressed with the way they integrated a full QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera, GPS, stereo sound (two speakers either side of the big colour screen) with the best bits of the chocolate – that trademark sleek, stylish design, and the illuminated touchpad. Much nicer than most of the brick-like QWERTY phones that are currently on offer over here, we’re hoping it hits British shores soon.
