Yesterday we heard that LG was following in Dell’s footsteps, ultimately taking a step back from Windows Phone 7 as it struggles to make a dent in OS market share.
Well stifle those laughs for now, mister, as it turns out the whole story was blown out of proportion.
What LG actually said to the Korea Herald was: "The total unit of Windows Phone sold in the global market is not a meaningful figure," however the South Koreans vowed to “continue research and development efforts” on Windows Phone.
That’s not quite the same as saying it’s abandoning ship altogether, is it?
Indeed, one of Pocket-lint’s Korea-based sources adds: "Regardless of which OS, LG is committed to offering consumers as wide a choice as possible." Er, whatever that means.
Either way, it ain’t gonna make a great deal of difference. In the UK, we’ve had the LG Optimus 7 (originally launched alongside Windows Phone in October 2010), and the Jil Sander variant thingy. That's your lot.
We're extremely proud to count SpeedyG, sole owner of an LG Windows Phone 7 handset in the UK, among our readership.
