LG Chocolate at Rogers

While most phones offered in Canada are direct counterparts to American equivalents, Rogers Wireless today said it now carries an uncommon variant of the Chocolate named the TG800. Unlike the previous VX8500 model carried by Verizon and Canada's Telus, the TG800 more closely follows the original Korean design and abandons the circular control pad for a larger, subtler scheme built directly into the slider phone's outer casing. It also retains the signature checkerboard number pad that had been removed for the initial North American edition. Importantly, the phone gains a world phone functionality not present in virtually any other model: a quad-band radio lets the TG800 connect to any GSM network while roaming across the globe, a feature partially absent from the CDMA-based VX8500. Rogers offers the new Chocolate for $150 CDN with a three-year contract and $320 as a stand-alone handset.
