Posted: 12-Feb-2003 [Source: LGE]

[LGE introduces the world's first dual-band dual-mode phone for both CDMA and WCDMA networks, the LG-K8100.]

With the full-fledged launch of 3G WCDMA service for the first half of this year, LG Electronics has introduced World's First DBDM (Dual Band Dual Mode) phone for both CDMA and WCDMA modes.

DBDM phone (Model: LG-K8100) comes with a 2.2-inch and 260,000 color TFT-LCD screen and an embedded 300,000-pixel (VGA grade) camera, working in both WCDMA and cdma2000 1x systems. LG Electronics has already provided DBDM phones to KTICOM for a test run.

There have been concerns that a lack of development of DBDM phone would be in the way of launching WCDMA services. However, it is now fully addressed with DBDM phone developed based on single-mode phone technologies.

What is more significant is that WCDMA service areas can also receive cdma2000 1x services, laying groundwork for early WCDMA service launch.

LG Electronics demonstrated a single-mode WCDMA phone with VOD (video on demand) function (Model: LG-K8000) in "IT Performance" during the 2002 World Cup opening ceremony. On top of that, its recent introduction of DBDM phone for WCDMA / cdma2000 1x has paved the way for LG Electronics to take the lead in not only CDMA but also WCDMA markets with its advanced mobile technologies.

LG-K8100 is fit for the next generation mobile multi-media service with all the sophisticated features including VOD, multi-media, entertainment and high-speed data transmission. A dual chip solution was used for this model to meet the latest standard of WCDMA phone.

Mr. Seong-tae Kwon, a director (Vice President) of LG Electronics 3G Handsets Lab. said "LG Electronics has already proved its advanced cellular phone technologies worldwide. For example, Ericsson and other WCDMA handset makers selected our single mode WCDMA phone for a system sync test. With the DBDM development, we aim to be a true leader of in the 3G CDMA and WCDMA market at home and abroad.

LG Electronics also plans to develop a "one chip solution" phone that needs only one chip for DBDM function, while working on stabilizing dual system sync to meet the demand for both test and commercial of WCDMA services in time.
