LG Focusing on Android, Not Windows Phone For Now

LG Optimus 3D Max Launch

LG has launched a slew of Android devices and the company plans to continue doing so instead of focusing on Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform. We’re not too surprised, since LG’s portfolio of Android phones runs the gamut from super cheap to ultra high-end, and it needs to keep that momentum in order to compete with Samsung and other firms, such as ZTE and Huawei. Speaking to FierceWireless recently, LG spokesman Ken Hong said the company is focusing on building and launching new Android smartphones but that it hasn’t “given up” on Windows Phone entirely. “Although we currently don’t have another Windows device in the pipeline, that is simply because demand for Android devices is so strong,” Hong said. “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.”
