SPOTLIGHT: LG Chocolate scores big in Strategy Analytics user survey

While the LG Chocolate phone was bashed in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today for looking like an iPod but not acting like one, research firm Strategy Analytics gave the LG Chocolate the highest overall marks in its Benchmark Database among four new ultra-thin devices. The LG Chocolate received the highest overall marks, followed by the BenQ-Siemens EF81 and Motorola SLVR. The Samsung SGH-Z540v was rated the lowest device in this hands-on consumer test. The LG Chocolate received a score of 78 out of 100 in terms of Style or Design--the highest of any 3G/video device tested in Europe--and the same score which had been achieved by the Motorola RAZR when it was first evaluated by a Strategy Analytics Advanced User Panel in March 2005.
