LG ELECTRONICS REVEALS BIG SIGNING FOR MOBILE BRAND
Sydney, 25 June 2008 – Hollywood leading man Chris Noth has been revealed as the Brand Ambassador for LG Mobile – Australia and New Zealand. The Golden Globe-nominated star, best known for his role as Mr Big from Sex & The City, was introduced to celebrities and the media during a glamorous mobile phone launch last night at Sydney’s State Theatre. Guests included former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins, television personalities Sara Groen and James Tobin, LG Cronulla Sharks players and MTV presenter Ruby Rose. A highlight of the sophisticated, vibrant evening was a performance by Australian jazz star Carl Riseley.
Carli Wilson, LG Marketing Manager Mobile Communications, said LG was delighted to have signed up one of the world’s sexiest men as a brand ambassador. "LG mobiles are fast becoming fashion icons by skilfully integrating smart technology with stylish design,” she said. “We are delighted to associate Mr Noth with the progressive LG brand. His endorsement in Australia and New Zealand reflects the growing popularity of our handsets to a broad yet highly discerning audience.”
LG Electronics’ new mobile range features the cutting-edge Touch Series of phones and the much anticipated Secret, the third handset in LG’s Black Label Series. Mr Noth said he had been impressed with the growth of the LG brand in the United States. He said he was delighted to visit Australia and promote the LG brand here.
“I am amazed by the rapid pace of the electronics industry, and LG is at the forefront of product innovation,” Mr Noth said. “I’m particularly attracted to the LG Secret, as it has a stylish carbon fibre back and tempered glass front. With a new son, I’m sure having this scratch-resistant phone will be a godsend very soon.” Mr Noth’s fitting appointment as LG Mobile Ambassador, Australia and New Zealand, will see him featured in a print and outdoor advertising campaign, as well as in point of sale and publicity materials.
LG’s reputation as a manufacturer of hi-tech handsets that provide consumers with stylish design and smart technology is demonstrated with the launch of these new handsets: LG Secret (KF750) The name Secret symbolises a slender and elegant handset that does not compromise the benefits and convenience of LG’s smart digital technology. The phone’s pet name, LG Secret, tempts the user to explore the phone’s features and check out the inner workings of a handset that will never go out of style. LG Secret features a tempered glass front for scratch resistance and a stunning carbon fibre back case. With a 5 megapixel camera and auto luminance control (automatically adjusting screen brightness) and DivX video file playback, it is a super-slim handset.
LG Secret is coming soon to Optus, 3 and Vodafone. RRP $899. LG Touch Series Early adopters of touch-screen technology will appreciate the tactile and easy-to-use nature of LG Touch Mobiles, complimented by their trademark slim design and stylish finish. Launched ahead of any competitive devices, the LG KF700 is the third full touchscreen handset. With the addition of a slide-out keypad and a shortcut wheel, it offers convenience beyond that of previous handsets. Users can choose to use the touchscreen of the handset to access menus or create text messages, or they can benefit from texting with a keypad without sacrificing screen size. The shortcut wheel lets users customise their preferred menu shortcuts for quick and easy access to their most frequently used features. The LG KF700 will be available soon from Telstra, Optus, 3 and Vodafone. RRP $699.
Previously released touch phones include PRADA Phone by LG and LG Viewty. Previously released Black Label Series phones include the LG Chocolate and LG Shine.
