Cameraphone users given new sharing website
4 December 2008 — 2:00 PM
Shoppers looking to recycle old mobile handsets in favour of a new high-tech cameraphone may be interested in the latest service from LG.
The South Korean manufacturer has announced the launch of an image-sharing website named Loop, where users can upload pictures from their phone, comment on shared images and take part in competitions.
LG notes that as high-performance cameraphones with three, five and now eight-megapixel sensors are now "increasingly commonplace", the Loop website could be a useful platform for many.
Jeremy Newing, head of LG UK's mobile marketing arm, said that the site is great for not only sharing, but also keeping up with friends and family and documenting events.
"Loop gives you the opportunity to share the special moments in your life, whether it's match-day at the football, your child's first day at school or a pod of dolphins swimming past while on holiday."
LG's current range of flagship mobile phones includes the KC910 Renoir - which is equipped with an eight-megapixel camera.
