LG Executive: LG G Pro 2 not coming to U.S. before April
According to Sung Ha, the U.S.launch of the LG G Pro 2 will not take place before April. Why? Well, it seems that LG conducted a study which revealed that phablets are most in demand in Asia while in the U.S., 5.2 inches is the sweet spot, exactly the size of the LG G2. In Europe, the continent goes wild over 5 inch handsets.
So with this survey in mind, the 5.9 inch LG G Pro 2 gets launched in Asia first and finally hits the U.S., followed by Europe. With that humungous screen, quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU and 3GB of RAM, LG has quite a beast on its hands.

By that time, you've lost all potential buyers of this phone.

Had the G 2 and G PAD. Market is saturated with
Greed. Phones and Pads. If companies are going to
sell minor changed products they will lose core customers and market share. My LG products?

LG is so stupid. They have no idea how to sell phones. Can't believe they think waiting to distribute and phone that is announced and released is a good idea.

I was planning on getting a G Pro 2 but if it's not out by the middle of May then I will stick with Samsung and get the SGS5.
