Default Life isn’t Good with Windows Phone, LG switches back to Android

One of the original launch partners of Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system is calling a quits. LG said during its earnings call last week that the company has no plans to introduce any new Windows Phones and instead will focus its efforts on Android. The South Korean-based manufacturer claimed that its partnership with Microsoft remains in good standards, however a focus on Windows Phone has not worked out financially. “The total unit of Windows Phone sold in the global market is not a meaningful figure,” an LG spokesman said to The Korea Herald. LG, which was once the world’s No. 3 handset maker, has seen weakening sales of its smartphone lineup. After recording losses for seven consecutive quarters, the company turned its first profit on the back of increased sales from its Android-powered devices operating of 4G LTE networks.
