momentum for its mobile business, LG Electronics USA is using International
CES® 2013 to showcase award-winning smartphone user experiences. With a wide
range of cutting-edge mobile devices created to enhance consumers' lives, LG
is well positioned for a robust 2013, according to James Fishler, senior vice
president, marketing, LG Electronics USA.
"We're ushering in 2013 with confidence and enthusiasm, building on a
breakthrough year for LG Electronics' mobile business," Fishler said here
today at LG's press conference on the eve of CES 2013. "With some of the
hottest products now on the market like the Optimus G and Nexus 4, LG has
captured the enthusiasm of consumers and influencers alike.
"We're leveraging the strengths of our sister LG companies for outstanding
technologies, introducing "Zerogap Touch" technology from LG Display and LG
Innotek and improved battery technology from LG Chem. And we're further
strengthening alliances with some of the industry's biggest and most
successful companies, including Qualcomm, Google and our carrier partners,
setting us up very nicely for the new year," Fishler added.
Greatly enhancing ease-of-use and multitasking for Android users, the fresh
release of the LG proprietary Optimus UI 3.0 delivers unique user experiences
like QuickMemo™, QSlide, Live Zoom and Dual Screen Dual Play, Fishler
QuickMemo lets users take a screenshot and add their own commentary or
drawings while the QSlide function gives users the ability to text, read
emails and navigate the web while watching video. Using Live Zoom, users can
zoom in and out to enjoy the smallest details in a video. Dual Screen Dual
Play allows users to not only mirror content between a smartphone and a TV or

flexibility for multitasking.

and sharing content with their contacts. VuTalk can be used either during a
phone call as a way to add visuals – such as notes, images, maps and more – or

or making a call. Shared content can then be then saved in the Notebook
application for access later.
