LG working on first Windows Phone 8 device, hasn't decided to release it though
LG has been one of the manufacturers on the rise in the Android ecosystem. The Optimus G has sold well around the world, and of course LG was the manufacturer of the Nexus 4, and is rumored to be making the Nexus 5 as well. But, the company may be looking beyond Android and towards Windows Phone.

LG’s Managing Director for the Indian market Soon H Kwon told Light Reading India, "At home (South Korea), we are actually working on our Windows Phone 8 OS powered smartphone." Although Kwon did note that LG had yet to come to a decision as to if the device would be released or not. 

Kwon didn't want to give the wrong impression though, and said that the company is still fully committed to Android, saying, "Android is the major platform globally, given its acceptance and penetration. Although, we believe that Windows will pick up going ahead, as Microsoft is pumping efforts into it."
