LG is the world’s third largest handset producer, with 100 million phones shipped in 2008

Admittedly, 2008 has been a pretty harsh year for most of the handset manufacturers, but it looks like LG has some reasons to be happy, at least a bit, about what happened last year.

The South Korean company shipped 100 million mobile devices during 2008, this allowing it to surpass both Motorola and Sony Ericsson in terms of sales.

In consequence, LG has become, for the first time in its history, the world’s third largest handset manufacturer.  

Obviously, the industry is still led by Nokia (470 million phones sold in 2008) and Samsung (with 200 million units sold).

Motorola managed to ship 99.9 million handsets, while Sony Ericsson’s 2008 ended with 96.6 million devices sold.


LG has big plans for 2009 too, as it intends to release more than 100 new phones by the end of the year. We’ll see soon how these plans are going to work out.
