    The circular control looks Appleish, but isn't a true click wheel. Has a kind of Creative Zen look to me, with the shape and thickness.

    I think this phone has been available in the UK for a while now. I remember someone selling it on the marketplace - from what I gathered, it was/is pretty popular over there, which I guess is why it made it's way to the US!

    That could be it. What really caught my eye was a commercial saying they are available on the 7th. <--WWDC

    The LG Chocolate does not appear to have any connection with Apple. It uses the Verizon V Cast services. Those music downloads are WMA format.....unless they have changed it for the US version.

    Here are the specs for the US version from LG's own site ... US Chocolate

    Cool phone, but i doubt its the iphone. Here's another question related to the iphone- what carrier does everyone think it will it go with?

    Yeah, must just be coincidence then about the 7th. It happens.

    Nothing to see here folks!

    Have they used a different phone for the US?

    The phone called the "chocolate" - actually, more commonly called the "KG800" is this phone in Australia, it's been out for a while now.

    The two chocolates seem too similar for it to be a coincidence, but it is weird...maybe the version shown here is a successor to the original chocolate? They're both pretty cute....

    I personally think that the Belkin Wi-Fi phone looks more like an Apple product (i don't know why but it was drawn to me).
