offering consumers more ways than ever to use their feature phones in creative and
dynamic ways.

Along with a range of applications for Windows OS phones that are already on sale, the
new LG Application Store will also extend its line-up of applications for Android-
powered smartphones at the end of this year. With demand for Android-powered phones
set to surge worldwide, the LG Application Store is well placed to enhance consumer’s
mobile experience, offering greater value and genuine benefits to owners of LG’s
Android smartphones.

The all new LG Application Store opens today in 23 markets. LG aims to increase the
number of applications in the LG Application Store to 4,000 by the end of this year and
