LG Electronics is importing a full range of hardware to hall 3. Alongside the vendor's usual range of display technologies, it will be promoting its mobile phones.

Stealing the limelight will be LG's G8000 camcorder phone. The converged device, which was introduced earlier in the year, enables the user to record a 90 second video clip. The vendor is promising to deliver the latest models at the show that boasts a greater range of functionality, including 180-degree lens rotation. "There has been a rapidly growing demand for multimedia phones in the Middle East," says Atul Verma, marketing manager, LG Electronics Gulf LZE. "We're going to have a full range of phones on our stand during the show. Next year most people will be using [multimedia] phones," he predicts.

Also appearing on the stand will be LG's G5300 Qiblah phone. The phone's Qiblah indicator uses an inbuilt longitude and latitude orientation or city references that when used with a comparison to magnetic north, indicates the direction of Mecca. The phone comes complete with a compass to ensure the user can always find the reference point of north.

"Localisation of products is always at the forefront of research and development on LG products," comments P. C. Choi, President, LG Electronics Gulf FZE. "This is possibly the most exciting 'localisation' of a product that LG has undertaken because of the implications of the Qiblah indicator. No matter where the faithful are at the call to prayer, they will be able to easily identify the direction of Mecca," he adds.
