LG's New Chocolate BL40 video posted on YouTube
What hot new yet-to-be-released phone has got everyone's attention this week? The LG Chocolate BL40. In what appears to be a marketing campaign, every few days something else comes out about it, probably to build up the hype months before it's release. Now there's a video posted on YouTube that highlight some of the features of the New Chocolate. Want to buy one? You'll have to wait. Rumor has it the BL40g variant is set for Telus and the VX8575 Chocolate Touch is due for Verizon in Q4.

This would be a really nice phone. Verizon is really pumping up there phone line up lately. I'm going to let some slip as I have done chipsets for them already, but here goes: (Some of which you already know) Nokia Shade 2705 Nokia Twist 7705 Casio Rock C731 - Has a PTT chipset in it. Pantech/UTStarcomm Razzle Casio Brigade C741 - Has a PTT chipset in it. Motorola V860 - Has a PTT chipset in it. Motorola Sholes A855 Motorola Entice (aka Harmony W766) Uses the same chipset, so bet you it's just VZW's version. Samsung U440 Samsung (Un-named, android device. Not sure if it will make it by Christmas, but hey the chips are done!) BB (Curve/Aries) 8530 - Yes it has Wifi BB Storm 9550 - Yes it has Wifi Samsung Convoy U640 - Don't know much about this one but based on chipset, it's probably going to be a midrange phone. Palm Treo 800w. - Better late than never I supposed. Chipsets just got done for VZW so it looks like February-ish I'm guessing? I hope this Chocolate is the BL40 variant. I haven't been working on any chipsets for it, but they could be doing it in house, which happens from time to time. But if some of these phones make it before Christmas, Verizon is really stepping up there game in a really good phone line up. Namely the: 9550, 8530, BL40q aka VX8575, U440, A855, and 7705. Not a bad little line up for the holidays if you ask me. My .02

This phone looks bad ass. PLEASE NOTE PALM: This is how to make a commercial. I know this isn't a commercial but a condensed version of this would be a hot commercial.

This thing looks massive. How can you use it like a phone, looks more like a baby tablet. I doubt it would fit in your pocket or very well in a holster on you hip.

I am greatly impressed! I can't wait for the phone to come out on VZW's network! Woohoo, props.

what i hate is how this is going to be compared to the iphone. just because a phone has a touchscreen doesn't mean it's trying to copy the iphone.

Impressive, especially for LG. However, not iPhone or Pre par.
