Hyundai Mobile enters the UK market, plans to launch about 10 new handsets

When you think about Hyundai, it’s probably a car that first comes into your mind. But the South Korean company also produces mobile phones and has a telecommunications arm, unsurprisingly called Hyundai Mobile.

At the moment, Hyundai Mobile is present in only few Asian and European countries, but this will probably change pretty soon. The company announced its intention to roll out services and phones in the UK, during the first half of 2009.

Apparently, the first handset to be released is a Windows Mobile one, called Hyundai Blighty. After it, about ten other devices will be launched in the UK by the end of the year. 

The devices will be part of four categories: Basic, Lifestyle, Music and Innovation.

Hyundai Mobile indents to conquer about 3 to 5 percent of the UK mobile market in the next five years. A Hyundai Mobile UK website is already launched, but it’s under construction for the moment.
