LG dooms then un-dooms portable games consoles

Optimistic Optimus

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

The head of LG's mobile phone division no longer thinks there's no future for handheld games consoles, it seems.

Earlier today, said executive, Dr Jon-seok Park, triumphantly declared in a company statement that "the era of dedicated handheld gaming platform is over".

Two hours later, the LG press release was re-issued, this time with Park's boast excised.

Could it be that, in so keenly touting stereoscopic 3D gaming on its new Optimus 3D smartphone as "the natural next step in portable entertainment", LG's press-release writers momentarily forgot that another company got there first - and did so not in a phone but in a "dedicated handheld gaming platform"?

Step forward, Nintendo's 3DS.

Keep up, LG. ®
