3G Chocolate Hits Asia Like a Bird Flu/SARS Love Child

Despite being only a mediocre phone, the LG Chocolate has sold around 4 million units worldwide. This, of course, is why LG's releasing a 3G version of the Chocolate to service the more wireless-broadband-friendly Asian market.

The 3G Chocolate has a 2-megapixel camera, a secondary VGA camera for video calls, UMTS, Bluetooh 1.2, and a microSD slot. Not that much has been changed, but it's enough to make real Chocolate lovers drool. It's bad the phone doesn't support EV-DO and the unsubsidized price is $638, but there may be hope for Verizon customers yet.
