LG to combine mobile and PC manufacturing divisions
LG will combine its mobile phone making operation with its personal computer business in response to growing consumer demand for converged products.
A spokesman said that the mobile division would absorb the PC business, and that no job losses would occur as a result, according to a Dow Jones report.
The spokesman said: ‘Handsets are increasingly taking the place of computers for surfing of the internet and as tools to use other services on the move.‘The combination of the two divisions is to meet the new trend of convergence.’
