LG Chocolate KU800 closedTomorrow's the official launch of the updated LG Chocolate in New Zealand, the KU800 which features 3G broadband amongst other things. Looks like a nice slider phone, and the name is certainly memorable although it says nothing much about the phone itself.

And, the colour seems to be black, and not chocolate-brown...

The dimensions are 95*17*46mm and the KU800 weighs 98 grams. It's a quad-band job I think, with 850, 900, 1900 and 2100MHz support. UMTS presumably means 384/128kbit/s speeds for data, but will check on that tomorrow at the launch.

Other features: 60MB internal memory that's shared with the operating system, but expandable with a mini-SD card; 2Mpixel, 2X optical zoom camera; VGA resolution front mounted camera for video calls; 2 inch 320*240 pixel display with 65k colours - I believe this is down from the 262k colours of the previous model.

No voice commands or voice dialling but there is Bluetooth and USB.

Full review coming up soon. Oh, it's available through Vodafone in New Zealand. No idea how much it'll cost yet.
