Excerpt: The new Chocolate phone is a surprising shape – more Dairy Milk king size than Toffee Crisp thanks to its super-wide screen. That screen looks great, too: vivid, bright and colour-rich. And it comes with plenty of brains to match the beauty, with GPS, a 5-megapixel camera with flash and FM radio among the high points. It even recognises multi-touch commands so you can zoom in by pinching your fingers apart, like on the iPhone.
Excerpt: The much awaited LG BL40 made its way to our labs and onto my table. As usual LG has strayed a bit from the conventional and gone with a slightly off beat design that would appeal to a slightly different audience. The BL40 is a designer mobile that’s more of a fashion statement rather than a mobile handset for daily use. Sadly it’s infused with their S-Class UI I have grown to dislike.
Excerpt: It seems apt to be pondering the pros and cons of watching films on a small screen on the very day that Apple has released its 10-inch iPad. I have always been amused by seeing fellow commuters on the tube squinting to watch a film on their iPhone. This is why I was sceptical when LG announced the Chocolate BL40 , an addition to its premium Black Label range. The phone has a 4-inch wide screen, designed for 21:9 widescreen viewing.
