Yesterday, LG had a big launching and PR event for its new product, "The Shine". The Shine was to be a very important product for LG, since the company wants to continue its pleasant rebound, achieved largely by its smash-hit model, the Chocolate (approx 5 million units sold so far).
No wonder LG made sure nothing goes wrong with the Shine's launch, but then suddenly Samsung made a PR on a similar product, just before the Shine launch event.

Competition is a good thing, but when the competition gets too heated and becomes a mudfight, that's not pretty at all.
