Google and LG partner for mobile applications
Posted on 29-Mar-2007 19:36. | Tags Filed under: News.



LG Electronics and Google have announced a global collaboration to pre-install Google's services on LG mobile phones, enabling mobile users around the world to easily search, find locations, update blogs and manage email while on the move.

Select LG handsets, pre-installed with Google products and services will be shipped globally including North America, Europe and Asia starting in the second quarter of 2007. These handsets will create a more dynamic user experience, including one click access to Google search through an icon in the application menu.

More features of LG-Google handsets include:
  • Google Maps for mobile, an application that enables users to view maps and satellite imagery, find local businesses, and get driving directions;
  • Gmail for mobile, a Java-based application that brings more speed, convenience and functionality to the mobile Gmail experience;
  • Blogger Mobile, an application to upload/download images and text to blog from mobile devices.

    Through this new partnership, LG and Google will jointly market LG-Google handsets, then further extending their collaboration to develop digitalized home in the future. LG plans to launch mobile handsets pre-installed with Google and products and service for the next few years with at least ten new handsets in 2007.
