The world of mobile telephones is highly competitive and mobile pone manufacturers have to look for the best ways of innovating in terms of the development of new mobile phones. If, not long ago, a Nokia competition took place, now it is LG that is announcing a contest to design the next generation of their mobile telephones.
LG Innovation Challenge is offering a 10,000 dollar prize to the winner, a second prize of 5,000 dollars and a third prize of 3,000 dollars. Each one of the recipients will also be given different LG products, the most outstanding of which is a 52″ LCD screen for the winner.
The term for sending the designs is now over and the winners will be announced on 31st May.
In addition to the prizes for the winners, these contests are very interesting in that they make it possible to detect trends in the world of mobile phone technology. Also for designers, they constitute a good way of making themselves known and increasing their possibilities of a contract with some major manufacturer of electronic devices.
Almost since the very beginnings of mobile telephony, its manufacturers have entered a frenzied race to offer novel products, with very attractive designs and new functionalities, but it must be said that different and revolutionary creations were rare. The case may be that the development of mobile phones is marked by the introduction of small improvements that are jointly leading to their being increasingly powerful and capable to doing practically anything we want (photos, videos, gps, mp3,…).
