  • Mobile hotspot (up to 5 devices connected)

Unboxing
Motorola chose to not give the Droid X a flashy box. In fact, it's only a inch bigger in width than the phone! The box is colored and styled the same as the original Droid. It comes only with a charger/USB cable and a quick start guide. I would've liked to see an HDMI cable here, but I'm sure they didn't include one to cut on costs.

I think Motorola did a good job of fooling people into thinking that this phone is small. It's ...

I am so excited to have a new Lotus hit my stores. I was a super huge fan of the original Lotus (LG600) and to have this phone deliver as well as it does makes me a happy camper. The phone brings from the original the odd square “compact” form factor that I really do enjoy. You have ...

If you're searching for a mobile device with smart phone features, (without the smart phone price tag) one of the new LG models may be on your wish list. LG has given us several choices over the years and 2009 is no exception - the Chocolate Touch, enV Touch, and the enV3 have hit Verizon stores with new features, redesigned bodies and more.

LG Chocolate Touch

The Chocolate Touch from LG features:
  • An FM radio with 12 presets
  • Integrated Song ID
  • Dedicated side key for easy access to favorite songs
  • Bluetooth
  • "Join the Band" - a band application
  • Dolby Mobile EQ


The Chocolate Touch is smaller than many devices out there today - it made my hands feel gigantic. It is the thinnest phone in the group at less then a half inch thick (0.47" or 12mm).

Out of the box the first thing you'll notice is the shiny body ...
