A rumor spread Friday has asserted that LG will be the first to make phones using Intel’s Medfield platform for Atom chips.

LG Unveils 55-Inch OLED TV
News from About – News & Issues:

The annual CES is quickly approaching and teaser announcements from manufacturers are starting to fill my e-mail box. One of the big pre-show announcements is coming from LG, via its LG Display division, who will be on hand at this year’s show with a new 55-inch OLED TV. Why is this significant?

Well, at just about every CES held for the past several years, one or more manufacturers have displayed OLED TV prototypes, or proposed production models, in various screen sizes, but just as the press gets all excited, we never see any OLED TVs on store shelves, except for a short-lived 11-inch model from Sony and 15-inch model from LG.

LG, Olive to reduce presence in low-end phone segment [Hardware] [Times of India]
News from TMCnet:

(Times of India Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NEW DELHI: LG India, the country’s largest consumer durables maker, will sell less of low-cost mobile handsets as a falling rupee threatens the viability of the category.

“The category is not giving us margins. So, we will have minimum presence in the low-cost segment and focus more on the premium category,” LG India MD Soon Kwon said. LG will now focus on handsets priced Rs 4,000 upwards.

Domestic handset maker Olive Mobiles, too, will cut its presence in the sub- Rs2,000 category because the rupee’s record 15% fall against the US dollar this year has made imports costlier and sales of low-margin, massmarket products unviable.

Most mobile phone companies, including LG and Olive, import handset for the Indian market. Kwon said that the industry will see a shift towards smartphones next year and companies not present in the higher-end category may have to e…………… continues on TMCnet
