This is some news for people who closely follow the developments on the wireless world. If LG’s mobile business president, Ahn Seung-kwon is to be believed, LG will become the number 2 cellphone manufacturer in the world, overtaking Samsung by the year 2012. As much as this piece of information is indigestible, the thought of LG conquering Samsung in a mere span of 3 years is equally surreal. Someone should tell Kwon that LG attained the number 3 position merely because of the shortcomings of Motorola and Sony Ericcson and not because LG came up with laudable strides in the cellphone sector.
This isn’t the only delusion LG has, it believes that it’s ‘to be released in Q4’ Black Label series phone can compete with the latest iPhone. Thankfully there are no irrational statements made about the Prada and the only thing they would do is to expand the line by offering another Handset-Prada III. The president surely needs a vacation and we hope that the he returns to sanity at the earliest, amen!
