At last some serious move from LG, the 2nd leg of Korean electronic industry. Recent sharp moves at mobile phone branch after the new CEOs (Koo Bon-joon)announcement brought remarkable success in short time. it seems now he and admin team decided to put more money on the game where they are still lacking behind the samsung who posted 21B$ spent. Nevertheless they are still alive and eagered to play hard. It would be so great if they also can jump into super AMOLED panel production in 2011 which would allow creation of great gadgets and break down of samsung monopoly for future.

LG appears to have a good broad product base on which to build. It looks like they may have dropped behind a little in some areas, but they've caught up before. It will be interesting to see if they will do so again.

How did they get that kind of money in this economy? That is impressive. Competition is just starting.

it will be interesting to follow the competition between the top two South Korean electronic companies in the following years. 12 billion USD in one year is huge money in my opinion.
