“The 3G LG Chocolate phone is arguably the best looking HSDPA handset on the market,” says John Barton, Sales & Marketing Director at LG Mobile UK. “With the original Chocolate phone selling more than four million units worldwide, demand for a 3G version was inevitable. The updated folder design looks sensational and is sure to appeal to 3G customers looking for a handset that stands out from the crowd.”
At just 14.8mm, the U830 is one of the slimmest 3G folders on the market slipping easily into the tightest of pockets. However, its slimline frame belies a host of 3G features including a POP3 e-mail client that allows users to access e-mail from popular web-based services such as Yahoo’s Mail, Google’s Gmail and Microsoft’s Hotmail.
Adds Barton: “Mobile phones are becoming more and more central to people’s lifestyles offering music, video, photography, e-mail, diaries, web surfing and much more besides. Like any valued possession, the look and feel is just as important as the functionality and the LG 3G Chocolate folder ticks both boxes.”
The U830 comes in a presentation box with a pair of high quality stereo headphones (3.5mm), two batteries and a USB lead as standard.
The LG U830 is exclusively available at launch on 3.
