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.
