LG is committed in releasing 20 Android smartphones for the rest of the year
There are definitely some good reasons why LG is the world's third largest mobile phone maker, but there is clearly one aspect where they fall short in when compared to the competition – smartphones. In just about every smartphone platform, LG has lagged behind in offering decent handsets, but they do so well when it comes to feature phones. For example, AT&T has offered devices such as the LG Incite and eXpo for the Windows Mobile front while they're just embarking on a relationship with T-Mobile. Additionally, Verizon just received the LG Fathom and Ally – both of which aren't the true high-end smartphone competitors that can match some of the offerings seen by HTC. During the first quarter of 2010, we've witnessed at how LG Mobile's operating profit sales plunge down to 0.9 percent which can be attributed to the lack of impressive smartphone hardware. With that in mind, the Korean based company is prepping to launch 20 Android handsets before the year is over – which proves to look impressive now that we're nearing the halfway point of the year. Even though the focus may be placed on the surging amount of love being garnered by Android, we've already seen how LG is also intent on releasing a Windows Phone 7 handset to the market. Needless to say that LG already has a lot of work ahead of itself if they are adamant on bringing out 20 Android sets to the market this year.

I am not sure LG will release 20 new 'phones' but I do know they are releasing 'several' new phones as well as Android 'devices'. Last month we executed a pre-load agreement whereby LG would load ShopSavvy on their Android phones. We had no idea LG was planning such a major assault on the Android market. The news has our team pretty excited over here. LG is the world's third largest phone maker - soon to be the world's biggest Android maker. WTG guys!

Can you rank the manufacturers? I would think HTC is the number 1 Android Phone maker followed second by Motorola. Am I wrong? As for cell phone makers, I wouldn't be surprised to see LG in the top 3, because they offer "feature" phones to lots of carriers.

Wow, that's a lot of phones for 6 months left in the year. Hopefully they will come out some something worth mentoning such as a high-end Android smartphone. They are number 3 in the industry for a reason...

Hopefully LG ups their touchscreen technology. The new LG Ally is a terrible experience...none of that env touch/LG dare'like nonsense.
