South Korea's LG Electronics Inc said on Tuesday that it will end the production of plasma display televisions by end-November in order to focus its efforts on liquid crystal display and OLED televisions. LG Electronics said in a regulatory filing the decision reflects a decline in demand for plasma televisions. The move was widely expected as LCD TVs have become the mainstay product in the global market. Samsung SDI Co Ltd, sister company of LG's TV rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, also said in July that it will shut down its plasma panel production business by Nov. 30 due to the decline in overall demand.

Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd (BABA.N) executive chairman Jack Ma said he's open to working with Apple Inc (AAPL.O) on mobile payments, as China's richest person prepares to call on Hollywood this week in search of media partners. Alibaba affiliate Alipay is China's largest payments service, while Apple just this month debuted its own version of a mobile wallet, letting iPhone 6 users make payments at retailers with their smartphones. Ma told a Wall Street Journal Digital Live conference on Monday that he has tremendous respect for Apple CEO Tim Cook. "I hope we can do something together," he said when asked if Alipay and Apple Pay might tie up. Ma, who amassed a fortune estimated at $25 billion partly through his stake in recent market debutante Alibaba, is a frequent visitor to the United States. This week, he plans to visit a number of Hollywood studios, reportedly to strike up content deals. "I want to come here looking for partners," he said, adding that China will eventually become the world's largest movie market. Alibaba, which handles more e-commerce transactions than Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) and eBay Inc (EBAY.O) combined, does not have much of a presence among American retail customers and Ma said his focus for now was on serving his Chinese clientele. Ma added that he wanted to work on selling American and European products to China, reversing the typical flow of goods over the past 10 to 15 years. Alibaba has acquired some smaller American companies such as niche online retailer 11Main and Ma said he will continue to invest in the United States. More»

The company said that the world’s first Xperia Aquatech store in Dubai is nearing completion and will open on December 3. At its opening, Sony said that it will provide a chance to some of its select VIP customers and members of the press to go underwater to view the Sony Z3 Series of waterproof smartphones, tablets, and accessories. “We promised 2014 would be a year marked by a bigger, better and bolder Sony approach to both our products and the way we present them,” said Rüediger Odenbach, vice president of Sony Mobile Middle East and Africa. “Currently, Sony Mobile offers its consumers a wide range of Xperia smartphones, tablets, and accessories with the highest waterproof rating, and today we have taken the bold step of creating The World’s First Xperia Aquatech Store, which will offer a number of our customers and guests an exhilarating and unforgettable experience, once again highlighting Xperia’s passion for innovation in the smartphone market.” However, the company did not reveal any further details about the location of the store or if it is going to be a temporary or a permanent one.

Canon Inc. (7751.TO) said Monday its net profit slipped 1% in the July-September period, as the company continued to struggle with falling demand for digital cameras. The Japanese office equipment and camera maker said its net profit decreased to Y58.249 billion ($540 million), from Y58.822 billion in the same period last year. Sales fell 4.5% to Y872.208 billion from Y913.149 billion. The improved quality of smartphone cameras has hit Canon and other digital camera makers. Worldwide camera shipments were down 32% in the first eight months of this year from the same period last year, according to data by the Camera & Imaging Products Association in Tokyo. Canon said imaging system sales, which include digital cameras, fell 9.4% during the third quarter, as consumers continued to use smartphones as cameras. To differentiate itself from smartphone cameras, Canon is shifting its focus to higher value-added products. For the full business year ending in December, the company now expects revenue of Y3.74 trillion, down from an earlier projection of Y3.78 trillion. The company's outlook is based on the assumption that the dollar will average Y108 and the euro Y137 for the rest of this year. Canon generates about 80% of its revenue outside Japan. Canon's earnings are based on U.S. accounting standards. More»

 Vodafone Egypt, the country's largest mobile carrier, said on Sunday it was negotiating a 4 billion Egyptian pound ($560 million) credit line with a consortium of seven banks. "The company is currently in the process of completion of the signing of a credit facility contract," a spokeswoman said via email. The participating banks are Banque Misr, Commercial International Bank(CIB), AlexBank, HSBC, Barclays Bank, Emirates NBD and QNB Bank. Vodafone Egypt, majority owned by British mobile operator Vodafone, is the leading communications player by customer numbers in the country of 86 million. It is also 45-percent owned by fixed-line telecoms firm Telecom Egypt . The spokeswoman did not say how the cash would be used but Egyptian financial newspaper al-Borsa said it would go towards modernising the company's network and improving services in the face of regular power blackouts. Egypt is facing its worst energy crisis in decades, with low production and high power consumption, resulting in regular power cuts that have hit private companies, particularly in the industrial sector.

The Egyptian Company for Mobile Services (Mobinil) (EMOB.CA) reported a net loss of LE390 million ($54.5 million) in its unaudited consolidated financial results for the quarter ending on 30 September 2014. This represents a 12.8 percent drop in losses for the mobile operator, compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year, for which the company reported a loss of LE447 million ($62.5 million), Mobinil said in a statement to the Egyptian Stock Exchange on Thursday. Revenues rose by 4 percent in the meantime, recording LE8.2 billion in Q3 2014, compared to LE7.8 billion in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The company attributed the relative drop in losses to improving economic conditions since the country's 2011 uprising, while blaming higher fuel prices and a newly-introduced 5 percent hike on income tax for rising operational costs and an increasing tax burden.
