If you were to suggest that LG Electronics is bringing everything but the kitchen sink to Gitex, it might be tempting to reply “don’t bet on it!”.

The company that can claim world firsts with internet-enabled washing machines, microwaves and refrigerators will have a massive product line-up at this year’s Gitex.

New products include digital cameras, MP3 players, DVD recorders and tablet PCs as well as storage devices like its new Super Multi DVD rewriter and new models in its range of Xnote notebooks.

“Gitex is an excellent opportunity to showcase our technology and products and we are confident this year’s event will highlight the rapid strides LG has made in the digital display, appliances and telecommunications spheres,” says P C Choi, president, LG Electronics Gulf FZE.

“We are looking forward to building on our previous successes with an enhanced product line-up and state of the art technology,” he adds.

On the digital display side, LG will be show-casing its range of Flatron monitors, both LCD and CRT. The company will also have its complete range of LCD TVs on display, including its 42-inch TV, plus its 71-inch plasma screen, which features HD resolution at 1,920 x 1,080.

Other products on display will include optional TV tuners, DVD Home Theatre systems, combination units and mobile phones.

The company is also unveiling its latest foray into the highly competitive notebook market in the form of its LM, LS and LU notebooks. The LM series comes in different product mixes and price ranges, tailored to customers’ needs, with a choice of two housings – 14.1’ screen and 15’ screen – and two motherboards, as well as a variety of options in terms of memory and drives.

Designed specifically for a mobile lifestyle, the notebooks feature the latest Intel wireless connectivity, an impressive 10 hours battery life, and a thinner and lighter design. The new range of notebooks use Intel Pentium M processors, and is equipped with the Windows XP operating system and Norton Anti-Virus 2004.

By bringing such a wide range of products to the show, LG hopes to grow its influence in the global mobile and display industries, Choi says.

“Gitex Dubai is now a well established and the most popular of all information technology trade shows in the Middle East and it is a good forum in which to meet potential business partners from the key markets of the Middle East, as well as promote new products and technologies,” he concludes.
