LG Electronics unveiled the successor to its popular Chocolate phone, the LG Shine. The new phone comes in a stainless steel casing but it's only available in Korea at the present time. LG plans to expand its availability early next year.

The handset features a mirror-like front that hides the LCD screen. It also includes a 2-megapixel camera, expandable slot memory and an MP3 player.

A keyboard is hidden behind the slide. A scroll wheel on the front is made to make navigating easier.
