A scoop out of MWC from CNET suggests LG is putting all its eggs in the Android basket for the foreseeable future. CNET reports that LG is not ready to embrace Windows Phone because the demand is just not there. “We want to give customers what they ask for,” the LG rep told CNET.
LG was one of the early adopters of Windows Phone when it first launched the LG Quantum. Windows Phone sales have been slow, while demand for Android, LG’s bread and butter, has skyrocketed. LG is still keeping its eye on Microsoft’s mobile operating system, but it won’t make a move until Windows Phone has widened its subscriber base. “When there’s a significant market for it, we will be on board,” an LG representative told CNET.
Whether Windows Phone can ever gain significant market share is the million dollar question. Android and iOS have lock on the mobile marketplace, and BlackBerry is coming on strong in 2013 with its BlackBerry 10. Do you think Windows Phone has what it takes to make an impact? Is LG right to focus on Android and ignore Windows Phone for the time being? Sound off in the comments and then hop over to CNET for additional insight.
