No new Windows Phone handsets from LG likely as firm re-evaluates position on OS

Looks gone?

Product: LG News | Manufacturer: LG
 
LG News Windows Phone, thumbnail 1
LG has told the Korea Herald (spotted by WPCentral) that it will no longer continue to produce Windows Phone-based handsets.

The reason for such a decision was because “the total unit of Windows Phone[s] sold in the global market is not a meaningful figure”.

Despite the lack of any WP phones on the horizon from the South Korean firm, though, the company also revealed via a spokesperson that it will “continue research and development efforts” on the mobile OS. Make that what you will.

Steve Ballmer is due to arrive in South Korea to present a speech at the Seoul Digital Forum later in May, so this public statement to the local press could well be seen as more of a strategic move than a definite nail in the coffin.

With LG pulling out, this leaves Nokia, HTC, and Samsung as the three major companies producing Windows Phone handsets, with the Finnish giant easily the most active among the group in recent months.

Great.. now we'll have even more of those abysmal, cumbersome Androids for tech nerds.
