Carphone gets Chocolate exclusive


Carphone Warehouse has today announced it will be the exclusive independent retailer to stock the new LG Chocolate handset, which launches next week.

The LG Chocolate BL40 touch screen handset launches September 8, and will be available for new and existing Carphone Warehouse customers signing up to a contract on Vodafone, Orange or O2, and will be free on £35 per month and above tariffs.

It is the fourth LG device to feature as part of the manufacturers Black Label series collection, and is a direct relation of the original Chocolate, which sold more than 21 million units worldwide.

Features on the new handset include a five megapixel camera, 4.0-inch wide HD LCD screen with an 800×345 pixel resolution, a dual screen and the ability to view web pages either vertically or horizontally, which Carphone claims is ideal for viewing home made videos and full length feature films. 

Carphone Warehouse CEO Andrew Harrison said: “The technological advances in mobile technology continue to excite us. The LG New Chocolate is great example of cutting edge features combined with the latest design concepts.

“Our customers are increasingly looking for new ways to use their mobiles and I’m sure the cinema-like quality of this handset won’t disappoint.”
