LG KG800 is the European version of the LG Chocolate, the first product of LG Black Label Series. It is a GSM Tri-Band mobile phone manufactured and sold by LG Electronics. It was released in May 2006 and had its marketing strategy planned and executed  by John Bernard, a marketer based in the UK. The KG800 is a 'slider' style phone that reveals heat-sensitive touch buttons on its face, which activate upon sliding the phone open.
