LG pulling away from Windows Phone to concentrate on Android

LG has never been a big backer of Windows Phone. In fact if you visit the “Buy” section on Microsoft’s website there are no LG devices listed. So it’s no surprise that LG is reportedly pulling away from Windows Phone to focus more on Android. This is according to the Korea Herald, who LG told “the total unit of Windows Phone sold in the global market is not a meaningful figure.”

LG has not been doing too well lately, thanks in large part to their rival Samsung dominating. Nokia has also been struggling, but they have already become the leading Windows Phone vendor. Android competition on the other hand is much tougher, we wish good luck to LG.

  • Although the Android market is definitely oversaturated with new phones and different builds, managing to take a small percentage of that market could equal the entire WP7 ecosystem if they get lucky.

    It’s definitely sad to see them throw in the towel after never really giving WP7 a shot though.
