South Korea's LG Electronics said Wednesday it has reached a deal with the world's leading search engine Google to pre-install its services on millions of mobile phones.
Mobile users worldwide will be able easily to search for information, find locations, update blogs and manage e-mail while on the move, LG said in a statement.
"LG's mobile devices, combined with Google, will provide consumers with easy access to their favourite Internet services even without a PC, and make it easy for them to stay connected while in motion," Paul Bae, vice president of product planning at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said.
The company said it will unveil 10 such models by the end of 2007, with the first model hitting the global market next month. They will offer one-click access to Google's search engine as well as Google maps, Gmail and Blogger Mobile.
Prices and what models will incorporate Google services have yet to be disclosed.
Samsung in January signed a similar pact with Google, in which the world's third-largest handset maker unveiled Google phones in the European market earlier this year.
