LG executive says LG will probably have a Windows Phone in 2014
LG has continued to tease a Windows Phone handset, this time for the 2014 time period.
Dimitar Valev (above) , LG’s head of mobile communications for Bulgaria, has said that they will probably produce a Windows Phone handset next year, depending on how Microsoft develop the system.
We plan to focus on Android, but we are ready and will probably run Windows Phone device. At least in Bulgaria, however, it will not appear this year. Depends on how Microsoft will continue to develop the operating system.
Other LG regional managers have already revealed the company is working on a Windows Phone handset, and I expect as the size of the ecosystem continues to grow their interest will continue to increase. LG only sold 12.1 million smartphones in Q2 2013, and to continue growing its shipments in the face of intense competition from Samsung and everyone else adding Windows Phone as a sideline does make sense.
However, given that LG’s handsets have never been the prettiest or best specified one wonders if there is any benefit competing in Windows Phone if they do not bring their A-game.
Do our readers think an LG Windows Phone 9 handset will be competitive? Let us know below.
