    These forums aren't of chocolate flavor/flavour

    However, I know why you made this thread. You think Apple is working on their own cellphone, and you're nervous. I can assure you that Apple is not working on a cell phone! Apple is working on THE cellphone. The "iPod Phone". Have a pleasant sleep tonight, cause Apple wont let you down

    Hey, look at that. . . a Taiwanese company flagrantly copying the look.



    I actually have an el cheapo LG phone that is surprisingly similar in design. I do like the sliding mechanism, although I question their motive to make the phone controls secondary.

    The chocolate got a pretty scathing review from Walter Mossberg of the WSJ. We all know he's biased, but he brings up a lot of concrete evidence to make the point that the chocolate is a chintsey device, and that, as expected, it has been crippled by Verizon to near-worthlessness.

    WSJ's a pay site (of course). any quotes? links?

    Turns out that "Chocolate" may be bad for you.

    bergz: I read it in the print edition, which was lying around in someone else's kitchen. So all I can do is have you trust me that it was a scathing review.



    The bottom line is that you have to pay extra for a 2G memory card ($100), that the scroll whell doesn't scroll at all (it's just four buttons), the OS is awful, and that it's difficult to load on MP3s other than those you download from Verizon for $2 each. When you do, all you get are filenames -- no ID tag information.
