Since then LG has struggled to get into the premium markets. The KG800 is a classy slider based on a popular CDMA handset which has sold 300,000 units in Korea alone since its launch last November – indeed, LG says it is now selling around 100,000 units per month there.
The KG800 has been nicknamed the Chocolate phone because of its appearance, though it probably deserves a more upmarket moniker to go along with its generally stylish looks.
This phone has a 1.3 megapixel camera and a 240×320 colour screen that is said to look stunning when lit – the screen and keypads glow red when in use. It is 14.5mm thick, includes 512MB memory, and has an MP3 player.
