SAN DIEGO - August 31, 2005 - This past weekend in Miami, Florida, LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A. (LG Mobile Phones) mixed and mingled with the stars at several different parties and events to celebrate the MTV Video Music Awards. Representatives from LG were on hand to introduce the guests to two of their hot new entertainment focused handsets, the LG VX8100 and the upcoming LG VX9800. The VMA's are all about bringing together the hottest stars in music, film and television to celebrate entertainment, and LG's latest phones are all about echoing that convergence for the ultimate wireless entertainment experience.

Both the VX8100 and VX9800 are advanced, stylish mobile phones that embody the new world of convergence between consumers, technology and entertainment. These two phones feature high-speed data access for video on demand and playing MP3 files with external memory access and state-of-the-art stereo speakers for unequaled sound, making them ideal entertainment devices. With these two handsets, and even more phones planned for the future, LG is demonstrating how new technologies can and will bring entertainment into every part of our lives and every minute of our days.

The VX8100 handset is available now, and representatives from LG's Concierge program handed them out to celebs at the different VMA events so they can experience the fun and entertainment of an LG phone. LG's representatives also gave stars and guests the chance to preview the new VX9800, slated to launch later this year and already generating significant buzz in the wireless and entertainment communities.

"LG is all about making the latest and greatest technologies a part of our customers daily lives," said Jon Maron, director of marketing, LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A. "LG is way ahead of the pack in integrating these new entertainment functions into mobile phones, and we're eager to share these entertainment-focused handsets with the musicians and actors - we're incredibly excited to have had a presence at the VMA's and the chance to connect with celebrities and introduce them to LG."
