Despite being supported by some of the most powerful technology companies (Nokia, Samsung, HTC) in the world, Windows Phone 8 has had trouble gaining ground. More vendors, then, may be the key to success and it appears the company may just get the help it needs, with recent reports suggest that LG is currently working on its first handset for the Windows Phone 8 platform.
Light Reading India issued a report quoting LG’s Managing Director for the Indian Market Soon H Kwon noting, “At home (South Korea), we are actually working on our Windows Phone 8 OS powered smartphone,” Kwon reportedly said. However, LG has yet to officially commit to the launch of said device.
Kwon also drove home the point that while the company may be delving into the Windows Phone 8 platform, Android remains the company’s major focus.
