LG focusing on Android right now, isn’t leaving Windows Phone

If you go over to our reviews page and look for LG phone reviews, you'll notice that most of them are for Android devices. In fact, a search for 'LG review' in our search box will bring up, in order: the DoublePlay, the Spectrum, and finally, the Quantum. The last one is the only Windows Phone out of the group. 

But LG is promising that more Windows Phones will come in time; the company is just focusing on Android devices right now "…because demand for Android devices is so strong." Here's the full direct quote from LG: 

"Although we don't have another Windows device in the pipeline at this moment, that is simply because demand for Android devices is so strong. We've maintained since the beginning that LG will support whatever operating system consumers want but at the moment, our priority is to get our Android devices to a level where we feel we've covered all the bases, to use an American analogy."

Microsoft may be more successful at getting people interested in both making apps for and using its Windows Phone platform than RIM, but the Redmond-based company still has a ways to go to catch up to iOS or Android. I'm sure that this is one of the reasons that LG has decided to focus on Android for the time being; regardless, a move like this from a large hardware partner can't help Microsoft at all. For Microsoft's sake, I hope that it can draw some developers away from other platforms so Windows Phone can become even more competitive.
