Yes, another LG phone we’re testing at the moment! While we are in the middle of reviewing the LG GW520, we’ve also been kindly sent the new LG Chocolate BL40. We’ve talked about the BL40 quite abit in the past and it has been mentioned by a number of tech blogs due to the radical changes it has had compared to its predecessor.
Good news to fans of solar gadgets, LG’s new mobile phone, the GD510 may appear to look like any LG phone running S-Class UI but in fact its secret lies on its back. The GD510 will apparently have an optional solar panel that will replace the battery cover and can be used to charge the phone’s battery. We are yet to find out how exactly this mechanism will be achieved, but it sounds like this won’t be an accessory you will find on unboxing.
The phone comes with a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display with a resolution of 240 x 400, a 3-megapixel camera, and a 8GB of storage space to store your captured pictures or videos. The LG GD510 will be available beginning in mid-October in Europe, it will be interesting to know if this solar panel will in the future be compatible with other currently existing LG phones.
After having the exclusive opportunity of seeing first hand the brand new Black Label Series LG Chocolate BL40 last week, here’s my first impressions of the new phone from LG and also some photos and videos from that night. It was one of the best LG events I’ve ever attended, LG wanted the launch night to be extraordinary and to do that they invited UK designer Wayne Hemmingway to celebrate the launch of the BL40.
What every phonemaker wants to accomplish when they launch a new handset is for people to think that it is like no other. For the LG BL40, LG wanted its first impression to be the phone of the future, to have an iconic design which makes it standout and distinct from any other.

For the GC900 to bare the “Viewty” badge, it needs to live up and improve on the expectations which have been inherited from its highly reputable predecessor, the original Viewty. In this part of our Viewty Smart review, we’ve focused on testing the GC900’s multimedia features and these include music play, video play, camera and also video recording.
We apologise for the delay in publishing this second part of our LG Viewty Smart GC900 review. Having received plenty of emails, we thought the most useful way to continue our sequel was to review the main features which you folks wanted us to test out and comment on further.
With the majority of upcoming LG phones to come using LG’s new S-Class UI, LG has decided for one month only to let users download and try out the S-Class UI in the form of a desktop widget.
Many of you will know that the S-Class UI features a unique 3D moving cube (as seen on the Arena, Viewty Smart), something that no other mobile user interface offers. For those of you who have been fascinated but not ready to commit yourself to purchasing a LG phone, this is the perfect opportunity for you to “try before you buy”.
