Gadget of the Day – LG 'Chocolate' U830

'Free Chocolate' screams 3’s website. No, not a jauntily moulded Father Christmas clutching a chocolate mobile, but this fetching number from LG

'Free Chocolate' screams 3’s website. No, not a jauntily moulded Father Christmas clutching a chocolate mobile, but this fetching number from LG, currently debuting on the numerically named network.And as much as we like chocs of the eating kind, we'll have 25 of these in our advent calendar any day. At just 15mm thick it retains the sleek black looks of the original. Flouting its pedigree it also has the trademark glowing red, touch sensitive buttons, and a few added tricks besides.Not content with just adding 3G, the mobile style gods have bestowed this Chocolate with a high-speed HSDPA fondant filling plus a 2MP camera and a generous 180MB of onboard memory for all those music tracks and Stuff podcasts.Alas, what the gods bestow, the gods can take away and this is yet another LG without a memory card slot. Looks like we'll have to cut back on those MP3s then.
