LG: we’ve sold 10 million L-Series smartphones!

LG: we’ve sold 10 million L-Series smartphones!South Korea’s other big mobile manufacturer, Lucky Goldstar, has fired out a sexy press release detailing a new smartphone sales milestone.

The Optimus L-Series, initially launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in February, has reached 10 million sales.

Cast your minds back to MWC, and you’ll (hopefully) remember the L-Series launched with the Optimus L3, L5 and L7. They were later joined by the Optimus L9.

In typical Android fashion, LG’s Optimus L-Series offers a range of specs at a range of price points, with the L3 coming in low with a 3.2in display and 800MHz processor, all the way up to the L9 with its 4.7in display and dual-core juice unit.

Of course, 10 million sales for four smartphones isn’t particularly impressive, and LG admits that it’s a “modest milestone”. The Samsung Galaxy S III alone has chalked up 30 million+ sales.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile yells: “Whereas other manufacturers are putting all their eggs into a one-size-fits-all phone, our strategy is to develop mobile products for all types of customers according to their individual needs and lifestyles.”

Who the heck is “one-size-fits-all” aimed at? Certainly not Samsung. Apple, maybe? The iPhone seems to be doing alright, thankyouverymuch LG.

Reducing it to NOT one-size-fits-all, is nicely avoiding the issue that the smaller Ls have poor specs. If LG made a well-specced 3.5 or 4-inch phone, they'd have a point.

Still 10 million in 8 months would still be an improvement for many
