Chocolate BL40 with US 3G

LG's Chocolate BL40 has shown up on the FCC website, revealing it will support the 850/1,900 HSDPA networks used by AT&T in the US. To date, the device is only deemed likely for Verizon's CDMA network and Telus' future HSDPA network in Canada. The Chocolate BL40 sports a 4-inch touchscreen with 800x345 resolution that can be split for multi-tasking.

Other specs include a 5-megapixel camera, a GPS sensors, a Wi-Fi radio and a microSDHC memory card slot, in addition to 7.2Mbps 3G support. The device will have multimedia capabilities, but won't be equipped with a smartphone-grade operating system.

While pricing and release dates are unknown, LG reportedly said it would be released by summer's end, which may include Verizon. A Telus version is also possible in the fall. Any potential AT&T version could arrive later, as the device is just going through the FCC.
