LG goes global with KF600, says it "cannot compete" in the low end

Chris Ziegler

Well, that certainly didn't take very long -- that Venus-esque piece from LG, the KF600, has already broken out of China for launches in Brazil and Turkey. At around $350, the dual-screen "touch navigation" slider is far from entry-level -- and that's just the way LG likes it, apparently. The company has gone on record saying that it's all but ceding the low end of the mobile spectrum to Nokia and Samsung, instead focusing its efforts on the $300 range globally as the key to reaping "stable and strong profits." With the Chocolate and Shine series seemingly doing so well across the globe, we'd venture to guess that might not be a bad niche for LG to fill.
