Korea’s LG Electronics Inc. said Wednesday (Feb. 13) that it signed an exclusive deal with a global mobile carrier association to supply handsets to the association’s envisioned worldwide network project.

The deal with a consortium of twelve mobile operators of the GSM Association (GSMA) calls for LG to supply third generation LG-KM560 and LG-KP330 models to GSMA’s project dubbed "Horizon," the company said.

Horizon aims to allow mobile phone service from anywhere in the world using third generation wireless mobile frequencies of 850 MHz, 1.9 GHz and 2.1 GHz.

The two folder-type phones have a download speed of up to 3.6Mbps and are equipped with bluetooth and high-end digital camera functions.
