LG Electronics axes its CEO due to a nosedive in handset profits
Mr Yong will be replaced by the brother of the LG Group chairman. LG's share of the cell phone industry's profits has shrunk more than half since the iPhone introduction, and the proliferation of Android smartphones.
The company is jumping on the Android bandwagon with full force, hoping to reverse these trends, and it's aiming to carve a niche for itself by outing five Windows Phone 7 devices by year-end. Will it succeed? We'll know more when the year is up.
