LG puts their money on Android, decides Windows Phone hardware is less important

In a move that shouldn’t really surprise anyone, LG has decided to set development of Windows Phone hardware in lieu of using Android for more handsets. LG has been known to bring to the market some great devices such as the new LG Lucid and LG Thrill 4G, and (as shown at MWC by the complete lack of anything WP-related) has been able to bring up a profit for the first time in 7 quarters of turning over losses, greatly due to the Android device market.

What do you think this means as far as what we can expect in the future from LG? Let us know in the comments.

    No surprise in that decision. They may be looking at Nokia and 18 months of dismal success with the win phone,losing last quarter,stock dropping like a rock and now credit cut to junk rating. Lg is not stupid.
