Today amongst Canada's fashion elite, LG Electronics Canada unveiled its hottest new cell phone, the LG New Chocolate. The iconic mobile handset was unleashed at LG Fashion Week Beauty by L'Oreal Paris during Evan Biddell's 2010 – Unnatural Disaster, technology-infused runway show and will be available only through TELUS this November, in time for the holiday season.

"When I first laid eyes on the sleek, stylish LG New Chocolate I knew it was a must-have for my 2010 – Unnatural Disaster show," said Canadian designer, Evan Biddell. "My line is all about combining the elements of nature and technology in a beautiful chaotic harmony, so I'm inspired by the perfect balance of high style and high tech that LG products achieve."

Merging a cinematic viewing experience, unparalleled style and the most innovative technology, the LG New Chocolate is this season's must have accessory. Sexy chic met striking originality as models strutted down the runway in Biddell's collection characterized by muted tones of grey and cream, acute coral accents and creative integrations of LG's stylish new handset.

"The LG New Chocolate is a beautiful phone inside and out," said Frank Lee, Corporate Marketing and Sponsorship Manager for LG Electronics Canada. "Beyond its striking form, the distinctive 4.0-inch vivid LCD screen creates stunning images that are extremely true to life. Whether you're on the runway or on the subway, you become part of the action with LG New Chocolate's vivid LCD screen."
