LG Social Shopping Service" Ding Dong" launches

Lg has gone social with its new service called “DingDong" Ding Dong is a social shopping service for the mobile platform, LG Uplus .The service provides smartphone users with information on franchise shops of diverse categories within the vicinity. If the user visits the shop, they automatically earns mileage points, which they can spend at the DingDong online mall.

“Small shops usually rely on ineffective marketing tools such as flyers. If they hand out flyers to a thousand people, only three or four end up entering the shop,” a representative for LG Uplus said. He cited statistics, according to which among the few who actually visit the shop, one out of four buy something. The point here is how to induce people to visit the shop, and DingDong focuses on this.  

LG Uplus expects DingDong to be about nine to 20 times more effective in marketing than conventional methods, as it provides information, coupons and other incentives for shoppers already near the locations of businesses.

According to Koreatimes Currently, around 1,000 shops, including cosmetics retailer The Face Shop and Beautiplex, as well as digital retailer PixDix have subscribed to DingDong as a franchise. LG Uplus plans to increase the number of franchised shops to 100,000 by the end of the year.

Smartphone users can download the DingDong application for free at application stores including Google’s Android Market, Apple’s App Store, or the T Store of SK Telecom and the OZ Store of LG Uplus.

Battle of Dual Core Smartphones Comparison

Many of last year's top smartphones packed a 1GHz processor - devices such as Apple's iPhone 4, HTC's Desire HD and the Windows Phone 7 handsets that arrived towards the back end of 2010, with Microsoft stipulating 1GHz as a minimum requirement for its OS.In  December, mobile maker LG announced what it described as the world's first dual-core smartphone: the LG Optimus 2X.

 What a dual-core chip does

Dual-core chips enable more power to be squeezed out of the processor because the chips contain two 1GHz cores - meaning there are two 1GHz processors that can be used in parallel to speed up performance, provided the mobile software has been optimised to take advantage of the parallel processing power. It's not as simple as saying a dual-core processor is twice as fast as a single-core processor, but dual-core chips should enable a noticeable speed and performance hike, particularly when it comes to multitasking. 

As Sprint showed off the HTC EVO 3D Android smartphone, they featured a neat comparison showing why the EVO 3D is currently the fastest smartphone coming to market with 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
