SEOUL -- LG Electronics teamed up with Naver, a leading portal service operator in South Korea, to provide digital education solutions and develop a cloud-based laptop that supports a convenient user experience through the operating system of Naver's freeware web browser.

LG said in a statement on January 8 that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Naver to expand smart education through their software, hardware and distribution capabilities. They would develop a laptop optimized for Naver's education platform and activate a related ecosystem by linking various products and platforms to find business opportunities.

Kim Hyo, who heads Naver Whale, a freeware web browser that is available in English and Korean, said the partnership is designed to create a case of digital education innovation. "We will expand the scope of joint projects in the future to provide various platforms that users can feel more substantially."
