LG denies it is ditching Windows Phone

LG denies it is ditching Windows Phone

02 May 2012

Company is simply focusing on the Android platform

Plenty of rumours have been going around this week suggesting LG has decided to ditch the Windows Phone platform, fuelled in part by a lack of Windows devices from the company, but also by a report from The Korea Herald claiming that LG was 'taking a step back from Windows phones.' But that's not actually the case.

In an email response to the rumours, the company stated quite categorically: 'No, we are not giving up on Windows Phone'. The statement continued: 'Although we don't have another Windows device in the pipeline at this moment, that is simply because demand for Android devices is so strong.'

'We've maintained since the beginning that LG will support whatever operating system consumers want but at the moment, our priority is to get our Android devices to a level where we feel we've covered all the bases, to use an American analogy.'

Interestingly, the spokesperson said The Korea Herald was taking things out of context and likened the publication to 'Korea's version of The News of the World.'

Despite the positive noises from LG, there really hasn't been much Windows Phone action since the official launch in the UK. Back then, we saw the launch of the LG Optimus 7 and later, a variation Jil Sander model. But to be fair to LG, we haven't see a many Windows launches at all, with the exception of the Nokia Lumia range.

All that could change when Microsoft introduces the Windows 8 platform (aka Apollo) for phones. There's every chance we could see a range of new phones, including an LG launch, developed for that, which is likely to be sometime at the end of 2012.
