LG Executive: LG G Pro 2 not coming to U.S. before April
The LG G Pro 2 is now official, as we told you earlier Thursday. The big question for those in the U.S. is, when will the handset be available in the states? Good question. Let's start in chronological order. Being a Korean company, LG's home country gets first crack at the device at the end of this month. So says Cho Sung Ha, head of Korean sales at LG's mobile division. Other Asian countries will be ringing up the LG G Pro 2 sometime next month.

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? Gone.

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.

Ended up getting the G3 from AT&T. I would still like to get this phone. But it's not a must have anymore.
