LG confirms they are out of the Windows Phone game


LG only gained a very small part of the small Windows Phone market, estimated to be around 7%, and have already said it “currently has no plans of rolling out another LG-manufactured Windows phone soon.”

Now during a launch event for the  Optimus G, LG Mobile Communications CEO Park Jong Seok re-iterated to reporters that they had "no specific plans for other mobile platforms".

Stressing the company’s strong relationship with Google,  Park said that the company has "strong LTE and UI patents compared with its competitors", and that it is aware of the patent war situation, but had no concerns.

LG last released Windows Phone handsets in 2010, the LG Optimus 7 and LG Quantum, and has recently started replacing warranty repair Windows Phones with Android handsets, so it is fair to day the company will not be tremendously missed.
