This article contains unofficial information.
- The hottest chocolate to date, LG Chocolate BL40, rolls out mid September. The handset equipped with 4-inch display with 21:9 screen screen ratio comes to Europe at first, but is to become available to other continents shortly after. The only thing capable of curbing our ravenous appetite will probably be its price, but (un)fortunately, we still don´t know anything about it. (source: LG)
- The Bluetooth certificate of the Motorola Sholes A855 doesn´t reveal anything new. The Android-based handset is expected this October through Verizon Wireless. The rumor has it the handset may actually hit the shelves under the name of Rival 2, since it closely resembles the Motorola Rival A455 that is exclusively sold through the same carrier.

- FCC document reveals information about the Samsung SCH-R850. The CDMA handset will sport GPS, Bluetooth and EV-DO internet connectivity. Judging by the image of its back, we suppose the device will come in a classic candybar form factor and will probably feature a touch senstitive screen. Still, it might be just our imagination working overtime. We do hope more information seeps through soon enough. (source: FCC)
- What would MWC look like without Nokia? We can hardly imagine the world´s largest cell phone manufacturer won´t be taking part. The rumor goes it´s quite likely that Nokia passes up on the next event in Barcelona. The (slightly implausible) reason behind the maufacturer´s decision, at least according to the very same hearsay, is that participation in similar events works out rather expensive and since Nokia has already managed to develop a fruitful business relationship with most, if not all, carriers, advertising their products there is not worth the cost.
