LG to convert half of its smartphone portfolio to Android in 2010
It was nary a year ago when LG announced that it was adopting Windows Mobile as it primary OS of choice for it smartphones. The Korean handset manufacturer projected that it would launch a whopping 50 Windows Mobile handsets in three years. That figure may have to revised as LG confirmed today that half of the smartphones that it has on tap for 2010 will be powered by Android. Of the twenty smartphones planned for 2010, ten will run some flavor of Android and the rest will be a combination of Windows Mobile and Linux handsets. LG’s first Android handset, the Eve, has been well-received as a mid- to entry-level offering and the GT540 was just made official at CES. Off to a good start, it will be interesting to see what new and exciting phones LG has in store for Android fans worldwide.
