The Pocket TV Phone, sporting a simple, black design and brick key pads in an up-market style, features the world's first convergence of card design and terrestrial DMB. Boasting a super-slim 10.95mm and a super-light 74g, it is the slimmest and lightest terrestrial DMB phone released to date.

Super-large flat panel TVs

Showcased in this exhibit were 102-inch PDP TVs, 100-inch LCD TVs, 71-inch gold-decorated PDP TVs, and other premium TVs by LG. These super-large full HD class TVs (2.07 megapixels, 1,920×1,080) have a screen resolution twice that of existing HD TVs (1 megapixel, 1,366×768). The 71-inch plasma TV comes packed with a gold-decorated home theater and set-top box, thereby emphasizing the most premium platinum image of 'Luxury Gold Design'.

LG Electronics presented a full lineup of its 2-megapixel full HD (high picture quality) 37-, 42-, and 47-inch LCD TVs. In particular, the production of its 37-inch full HD LCD TV is profoundly meaningful, as smaller screens make it technically more difficult to implement a 2-megapixel full HD resolution. These full HD PDP TVs include a 60-inch plasma TV that complements the full HD 71-inch gold-accented PDP TVs currently available in the market.

Fantasy Monitor

With its basic concept inspired by the interplay of light and humanity, the Fantasy Series is designed to offer an interaction between a monitor and a user. The Series consists of the △ L 1900J that resembles luminous ceramics △ L1900R and its intriguing curves, and L1900E inspired by the beauty of a lunar eclipse. With red LED subtly installed in the right places, this product simulates a unique ambience, and can serve as an interior decor even when not in operation, which makes it more a piece of art than a home appliance.
