LG is taking no prisoners in 2012 and along with a wave of new high-end Android Superphones is reportedly lining up a series of Windows Phone 8 device release dates for the second half of the year.
According to new information printed by The Korea Times, LG is to further its relentless onslaught on the Smartphone market on an entirely new level.
This wouldn’t be the first time LG had dabbled in the Windows Phone platform however, as they previously had devices running the Microsoft mobile OS back in 2010. However, their allegiance to Google was pretty much solidified when the brand enjoyed growing and ongoing success with the Android platform, culminating in the recent global-domination of the almost impossible to get hold of LG Nexus 4.
Their Windows Phone ambition seemed to fall off the map, though the success and growing strength of Windows Phone 8 appears to have LG’s attention. It may only be early days, but the platform had made a name for itself with both consumers and critics alike, making now the idea time to jump on the bandwagon…as LG apparently intends to.
That’s about as far as the details go at this stage however, with little to nothing to go on in terms of device specs, features, names, prices or release dates.
Sadly, we don’t have any further details about LG’s Windows Phone 8 smartphones at the current time. However, history tells us we can expect a premium smartphone, a mid-range device and an affordable Windows mobile to be released. Nevertheless, if LG’s Android product roadmap for 2013 is anything to go by, the LG Windows Phone 8 Smartphone will be quite the leviathan.
We’ve already been tipped off the LG is lining up something big for next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, another LG Nexus Smartphone may also be on the cards and then there’s the elusive LG Optimus G2 that’s for sure coming sometime this year.
A busy year ahead for LG – an exciting year in Smartphones for us!
