It looked a lot better in the commercials. And the shape is so weird. He looked very awkward holding it in his hand.

What would convince them that keeping the "chocolate" name would be a good idea?

OMG the phone was way worst than my iPhone 3GS, thank god I didn't go to Koreans. The vid is laggy, no speaker? Obviously the web page was slow and a bit slow when loading when scrolled. This phone is not worth it.

IDK, I REALLY like this phone. I also really like the fact that LG have gone with a capacitive touchscreen vs. their usual resistive touchscreens for other phones. I'd really like to see this phone land on VZW network here in the States. I'd prolly be willing to give up my BB for it at this point. I've kinda gotten sick and tired of the BS with "smart"phones. Don't get me wrong, I've had an enjoyable experience, it's just that I hate having to specifically "close" menus and whatnot. I feel like I'm in a constant battle to keep memory available for my phone to run smoothly. It's just become apparent while I've had it that yes, it's nice to get my email and whatever pushed to my phone, but I'm not sure it's worth the heavy $30/mo. price tag. Not to mention that it's getting a little annoying to hear my phone ding at me ALL DAY LONG due to a seemingly never ending stream of emails, SMS, MMS messages.

Apple now have GPush notification. And it is way better than LG. My first phone was a very old Nokia probably back in year of 2000, and I hated it so much. Anyway after getting the iPhone not even Hero/Pre/Storm 2/Nokia E72 is on my wish list at all.
