LG losing interest in Windows Mobile - considers it unqualified?
Remember that allegiance that LG once mentioned they would have with Microsoft a year ago? Apparently that seemingly would never happen with LG’s commitment on introducing half of their smartphone lineup being powered by the Android platform. LG Mobile president and CEO, Skott Ahn, stated in a recent interview with the Korea Times that they plan on introducing 20 smartphones this year; with half of them running Android. This also looms badly for Microsoft; especially when they plan on unveiling the next version of their operating system at MWC. Ahn goes further on to say that “Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system is rather unqualified in mobile interfaces” and that they are in search of “a key flagship smartphone model that could sell over 10 million units.” With so many manufacturers already witnessing the financial successes with Android devices, LG’s change of heart may have some justification. Unfortunately for Microsoft, they will really need to impress everyone if they want to stay competitive and attractive in this market.

So much for LG starting rumors about their WM7 phones in September... Anyway, I think this is just an excuse for making cheap, crappy phones like they always have. If the WM7 minimum specs are correct, than LG will not be able to make cheap phones and pass em off as amazing phones. Doesn't bother me one bit. WM still has HTC and Samsung, the two est phone manufacturers imo
