Enterprise Mobility: LG Electronics Shows Off Something for Everyone at CES
Phone maker LG Electronics used the opportunity of the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show to introduce more than a dozen new devices. In the mix were??ía handful of smartphones, including LG's first with Windows Phone 7; 4G USB modems for Verizon Wireless and AT&T's pending LTE network; two Bluetooth headsetsincluding one that runs on solar powerand a wireless charging pad. In early 2010, LG announced its goal to become one of the top two global phone makers by 2012, and part of its strategy has beenjust as with competitors such as Samsungto heartily embrace Google's Android OS. Among the new LG phones are three Android-running Optimus models designed for first-time smartphone owners. A month earlier, in mid-December, LG also covered the opposite end of the spectrum with the introduction of the Optimus 2X, the world's first smartphone with a dual-core processor. Unseating either Nokia or Samsung for a top-two spot will be a long road, and it appears LG is just getting started.
