LG BL40 Chocolate reappears in video and in new pictures
Hungry for some more chocolate? We know that you can't get enough of the LG Chocolate BL40 handset and Mobile@mail.ru got their hands on one and had it pose for some pictures. In addition, a YouTube video that had originally been seen about 2 weeks ago is back and you can almost feel the heat coming through the computer screen. The BL40 has the buzz du jour and it should be interesting to see where this slab of chocolate ends up.
Our last report has a possible Stateside landing at Verizon in the fourth quarter as the VX8575.

this is interesting. also it seems like since the screen is so narrow, when typing in landscape mode, you'd only be able to see one line worth of text. besides that i don't really think this phone is practical, seems more for just design and the "black label series"

I think it'll fit in a pocket with no prob, unless you have some chick who's wearing skin tight jeans w/ this phone...

Thats what chicks have purses for bro! Plus I'd sacrifice some chick's lack of ability to have this phone so she can keep her skin tight jeans;)

Ha! Yeah, icons arranged in a grid pattern...how original of Apple; like that hadn't been done before the iPhone came along. Instead of eating souls, maybe you should try eating some brains.

I took another look and perhaps your comment of this phone's OS being a "lame iPhone OS copy" is coming from the third picture from the top at the right, with the four icons across the bottom. Still though, why don't you go look back at the interface for the LG Prada, that launched a good year or so BEFORE the iPhone, and you'll see that the interface with the icons at the bottom are present in that phone as well. So, in actuality it would appear that in fact Apple "copied" LG...if you want to play that little game. Have a nice day.

Looks impressive but I think iPhone have those features already and I think iPhone is more prada than LG anyway.
