LG Sticking By Windows Phone 7

LG has denied rumours that it is ditching the Windows Phone 7 operating system (OS) in favour of Android.

Reports had been circulating that LG would be getting rid of the OS for good after a spokesperson for the firm was quoted as saying in the Korea Herald the company would be taking a step back from it.

The spokesman suggested that the total unit sales of Windows Phone-operated mobile phones had not been as strong as expected.

However, a representative for the company in Korea told Pocket-lint that none of the speculation is true and criticised the publication that started spreading the reports.

In the UK the only Windows Phone 7 device currently on offer to consumers is the LG Optimus 7, while in the US the only offering is the LG Quantum.

"We are still on board with Windows Phone, but right now, we're focusing on Android because that's where the demand is," the spokesman added.
