The tri-band/EDGE LG KE800 (to give it the official name) is a luxury version of the original, keeping the glowing red touch keypad and adding the “Chocolate” name plus a couple of extra features. It now has an SD card memory slot, an upgraded 2 megapixel camera with auto focus, night mode and multi burst, an FM radio and twice as much on-board memory as the original Chocolate handset (256MB rather than 128MB).
It also has an upgraded class-leading MP3, MPEG4 and AAC music and video player and stereo Bluetooth functionality, if you want to play your music via a wireless Bluetooth headset. The music player also features a 5-band graphic equaliser, along with voice and keyword search for finding your favourite tunes.
