LG commits to a WP7 phone by year's end

LG is re-affirming its commitment to the Windows Phone 7 movement.

Ahn Seung-kwon, LG's Mobile Business Chief, stated:

"We will boost our premium lineup, LG Electronics will concentrate on developing devices that take full advantage of the Android and Windows Mobile 7 systems for the next year or two."

He explained that 10 design-focused and specification-rich smartphones will be marketed with North America and Europe targeted for these new phones.

Asked when we will see a Windows Phone 7 device, Ahn said the schedule to market a Windows Mobile 7 in the second half of the year was underway. This would put LG in line with the "by holiday 2010" statements we've heard from others on the WP7 availability.

We've like what we have seen from LG recently with their Expo and Fathom. It will interesting to see what the company can do with Windows Phone 7.

They've stuck to the same plan since back at MWC in Feb. Nothing really new here only that they're working on 10 devices. I can't wait for the hardware race to start, since WP7 doesn't let you mess with the UI like before and load phones with crapware, hardware will be the push.

taiban says:

WP7 will need a little for fire power for the "movement." I was reading the May AdMob report last night. WM's market share is down to 2% and LG commands a whopping 3% of the North American smartphone market.

LG is a good company that makes good products, but they haven't been particular successful in NA.

says:

No, they haven't, but LG is big around here in Europe and does good in Asia. That aside, we will get phones from other makers like samsung and htc as well, the more the better.

"The Windows Phone 7 Movement"?
you gotta be kidding me

"Suicidal Mother of Kin"
I like the sound of that better...
