Korea-based electronics giant LG has clarified that it will be focusing more on Android than Windows Phone going forward. This shift in focus was announced by Ramchan Woo, smartphone unit leader of LG, during the Mobile World Conference at Barcelona, Spain. Acording to Woo, sales of LG’s Microsoft-powered handsets had been “slower-than-hoped-for”.
During the ongoing Mobile World Congress, LG was anticipated to unveil its LG Fanstasy Windows Phone, the images of which has been leaked on numerous accounts earlier. Woo complained that LG’s Windows Phones had sold slower than expected, but additional models were in the works.
Citing the varied demand for new Windows Phones from operator as the reason for this change in focus, Woo said, “Some operators, they ask (for) Windows Phone to balance Android; however, the others, they are (still) figuring out how to sell Windows.”
Presently, LG only sells around 10% of Windows Phones. The uninspiring designs of LG Windows Phone is also one of the reasons behind this dismal sales performance.
