LG Air Sync Demoed

LG Air Sync is way that connects mobile phones to the cloud so that files can be seamlessly shared between devices. This technology is first to be used on the new LG Mini GD880 that was announced recently. However, the Air Sync software hasn’t hit it’s end of life just yet as LG continue to develop the software and have come up with a new concept shown below which makes use of a surface computer to move data to and from various devices.

The demo shows an LG phone being placed on a surface computer which immediately detects the phone and loads up a couple of sync areas. One of them is a PC Suite while the other is the cloud. By dragging files around to various areas it makes syncing files easy. An example shows a photo being placed on the surface screen and this being read in to the computer and then dragged to the sync folder where it then pops up on the phone.

It’s an interesting concept and one that isn’t necessarily new as we have seen this type of stuff before. It just seems like LG are actually making progress with the system though which is always good to see.

‘We live in an information-oriented society with vast amounts of data and content scattered all over the place. Because of this, one of the major battles in the future mobile market is likely to be in the data management technology industry, focusing on seamless access among different devices, said Dr. Skott Ahn, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

No dates on when the surface Air Sync will be available although when the GD880 launches you will get access to LG Air Sync.
