LG Design Gets it Hot.

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on June 19, 2006

If you’re not getting DesignBytes from the IDSA, you are missing out a lot on news on innovation and design from all over the world. This week’s issue is chock full of interesting goodies.

Check out this piece on how LG Electronics is making a cell phone that responds to your touch. Seems to have a red-glowing, touch senstive cover and other goodies. Building on its now famous Chocolate Phone, LG is pushing the envelop in design. Some real competition for Samsung—and Nokia and Motorola-perhaps.

And guess what? The chief of mobile phone design is Kim Jin, a woman. Lots of change in once-conservative Confucian Korea in recent years. All making for better innovation, sales and profits.

lol, korea is still a very conservative confucian society, but this hasn't really hampered women. why don't you do some market research on korea before you offend them with your erroneous statements?

I don't think he meant it in an offensive way. Even in the states, women as CEOs marks change from the mentality of business that was born during the industrial revolution. It is a good thing, and a sign of widening perspective.
