Consumer electronics major LG Electronics said the company would start manufacturing CDMA handsets in India next year and also plans to scale up production capacity of GSM mobile phones to 10 million from current one million by 2010.
"We are contemplating starting manufacturing CDMA handsets by next year," LG Electronics India Ltd Managing Director K R Kim said. Declining to share investment details for the project, he said manufacturing of the CDMA handsets would be done at the company's existing plant in Pune.
"As of now, the company imports CDMA handsets in India, but once the manufacturing begins it would be sufficient for the market here," he said.
The Pune plant produces over one million GSM mobile handsets and the company plan to scale it up to 10 million by 2010, he said. (The Economic Times)
