LG swings to a loss as TV, phone sales slump

LG swings to a loss as TV, phone sales slump
News from CNET:

The Thrill 4G is among the latest wave of smartphones to come out of LG.

(Credit: Roger Cheng/CNET)

LG Electronics swung to a loss in the third quarter as its television and handset businesses suffered a sharp decline in sales.

LG reported a third-quarter loss of 414 billion Korean won ($ 366 million), compared with a year-earlier loss of 8 billion Korean won. Revenue fell 4 percent to 13.4 trillion Korean won ($ 11.8 billion).

The chief culprits came from the handset and television business. LG’s handset business saw declining sales in both its basic phone business, which it has been purposely ratcheting down, as well as its more profitable smartphone business. Unlike other handset manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics or HTC, the company has yet to truly crack the market with a breakout hit smartphone using

LG Posts Wider-Than-Estimated Loss on Phones, Flat-Panel Unit
News from BusinessWeek:
October 26, 2011, 4:01 AM EDT

By Jun Yang

Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) — LG Electronics Inc., the world’s third-largest maker of mobile phones, reported a wider-than- estimated quarterly loss as mobile-phone sales missed forecasts and earnings dropped at its flat-panel unit.

LG had a net loss of 414 billion won ($ 367 million) in the three months ended September, it said in a statement today, wider than the 56.1 billion won loss average of eight analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg in the past four weeks. The Seoul-based phone maker had a profit of 7.6 billion won in the third quarter last year.

A record loss at LG Display Co. added to lower sales at the mobile-phone business, which has lost more than 700 billion won in the past year. Chief Executive Officer Koo Bon Joon is introducing 3-D televisions and new models of Optimus smartphones powered by Google Inc.’s Andr…………… continues on BusinessWeek

LG Phone Fails in Becoming Cool as Apple Vies With Samsung: Tech

LG Phone Fails in Becoming Cool as Apple Vies With Samsung: Tech
News from San Francisco Chronicle:

Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) — LG Electronics Inc.’s new Optimus phone sports a display sharper than the one on Apple Inc.’s iPhone and its chip puts it on par with Samsung Electronics Co.’s newest Galaxy. Gwon Soo Seok, 23, still isn’t won over.

“LG’s image is that of a laggard,” said Gwon, a student in Seoul who is leaning toward an iPhone or a Galaxy. “LG seems to have good technology, but Apple and Samsung are the cool ones,” said Gwon, who stopped using devices made by Seoul-based LG, the world’s No. 3 phonemaker, three years ago.

The failure to woo consumers like Gwon leaves LG at a disadvantage to Apple and Samsung in smartphones, the fastest- growing segment of the $ 207 billion mobile-phone industry. LG had 718 billion won ($ 625 million) in operating losses at the handset division in the year to June, compared with a 5.7 trillion-won profit in the same period at Samsung.

LG Enlighten (Verizon Wireless)

LG Enlighten (Verizon Wireless)
News from CNET:

We can hardly believe that almost a year has passed since the first U.S. LG Android phone, the LG Ally, hit our shores. LG has advanced considerably in the U.S. market since then, with the release of several great Android phones like the high-end T-Mobile G2X, the entry-level Optimus handsets for every major carrier, and the recently launched midrange LG Marquee.

Now LG has introduced a successor to the Ally with the LG Enlighten for Verizon Wireless. In the tradition of LG’s entry-level offerings, the Enlighten is surprisingly feature-packed for its category–it ships with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, 3G, Wi-Fi, along with 3G Mobile Hotspot capability for up to f…………… continues on CNET

LG Optimus 3D adds new perspective
News from Gadget:
21 Oct 2011 by Sean Bacher | Filed in Product Reviews

Android cellphones are being pumped out by various manufactures, often with no features that distinguish one from another. SEAN BACHER finds one that really does separate itself from the rest – but will a 3D phone fly?

Last year LG stole a march on the industry when it introduced the Optimus Prime, the first smartphone to come pre-installed with the Android 2.2, or Froyo, operating system. It was also one of the cheapest smartphones on the market at the time.
