LG should just stick to making dishwashers and fridges.

LG is like Motorola. Can't get their $hit together with their mobile business.
Android OS keeps them both alive, thanks to its popularity.

Poor LG. They do not make bad phones, just none that stand out. When you test several devices side by side, an LG makes little to no impression. Maybe they should stick to lower end devices, and get them to second tier carriers who are DYING for smart phones to attract users. Or maybe try to do something more than just Droid, when they can not compete with HTC or Samsung. The Quantum sold well, from what I have heard.
Just not as well as Focus. Or Surround. Huh. Scratch that. They are in trouble.

lg optimus 2x and black are not doing very well. you know something is wrong when after just a few weeks of release they lower the price instantly. same thing happen to nokia e7.

Lets think about this for a second. We are still in a major global recession and trying to get out. The biggest company in mobile signs a deal with M$ and RIM, the once darilings of enterprise are in trouble.
I am pretty certain if people are not spending money, this will be applied to phone sales. I dont think its a matter of LG not making ok phones, its their goals were unrealistic based on what they projected. Its the projection that needs to be downgraded. "Only" 114 million were shipped. Chump change...
Wake up people.

I AM CURIOUS WHY I HAVE SEEN LG OPTIMUS 3D MENTIONED SEVERAL TIMES AS THE FIRST 3D PHONE AS IT IS IN THIS ARTICLE WHEN THE HTC EVO 3D WAS ANNOUNCED FIRST ON THIS SITE AND ON PHONESCOOP...JUST AN OBSERVATION

The LG Optimus 3D was the first 3D phone.
The HTC Evo 3D hit the market first in the United States, though.
So, right and wrong.
Hope this clears it all up, Mr. Caps.
