Consumers shopping for the latest contracts, having received money for old mobile phones, may be interested in LG's latest award.

The company has announced that its chief technology officer (CTO) has been singled out for praise for an international honour that looks at the product testing facilities of manufacturers.

LG Electronics took the title of being one of Underwriters Laboratories' (UL) Leaders in World Safety, with the award given to its CTO, Dr Woo Paik.

The South Korean company, whose products include not only mobile phones, but also LCD TVs, kitchen appliances and air conditioning systems, received the accolade for the safety and certification processes of its new products.

Having awarded Dr Paik the title at the firm's headquarters in Seoul, Korea, UL president Sajeev Jesudas said: "LG has made every effort to offer products and services with quality, safety and sustainability."

The most recent handset to be announced in the manufacturer's range is the follow up to the original Prada phone.

LG's Prada II marks the second collaboration with the design house of the same name and the model will be available with a wristwatch-style accessory capable of alerting users to incoming calls and text messages.
