LG Chocolate BL20 Brings Back Traditional Chocolate Styling

Unlike LG's wacky BL40 ultra-widescreen Chocolate, the newly-spotted BL20 is more obviously from the Chocolate lineage. It's a non-touchscreen slider with haptic feedback on its touch-sensitive buttons, and actually features an interface not dissimilar to the BL40. » 9/05/09 5:00pm 9/05/09 5:00pm
