Quick Take: While the LG VX8500 Chocolate from Verizon has taken the U.S. market by storm since its release, it looks markedly different from its GSM cousin released in Europe and Asia. The GSM version in Europe and Asia, otherwise known as the LG Chocolate KG800, does not have the iPod-like music wheel that the U.S. version does; instead it sports a seamless glossy design with a red backlight emanating from its touch-sensitive controls. A few features remain similar, such as text and multimedia messaging, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music player, and a video recorder. There is a discrepancy regarding memory, however; the GSM version has 128MB of internal memory but no external memory card slot, while the CDMA or U.S. version has an internal memory of 62MB (66MB for shared applications) plus a MicroSD card slot. Of course, the GSM version also does not support high-speed EV-DO. We don't know if LG will release a GSM version of the Chocolate stateside, but if it does, we'll be sure to review it as well. Meanwhile, please check out the review of the LG Chocolate KG800 over on our sister sites at CNET UK and CNET Asia.
