20 is the Magic Number: LG Bringing That Many Androids This Year


Well I’ll be. Motorola isn’t the only manufacturer looking to make a big splash in Android’s growing pool in 2010. After hearing they’d be bringing 20 handsets (for a variety of different carriers and markets) by the end of this year, it looks like LG’s suiting up and following in those footsteps.


According to Korea Times, the company’s set to bring out 20 Android handsets by the end of this year to try and bolster its performance in the smartphone market. In the past year, they’ve reportedly dropped from 6.7% to 0.9% in operating profit. It’s clear why the pressure is on and why moves need to start being made.

Analyst Chung Seung-hoon puts it best: they need to start becoming a leader and not a follower. While his statement wasn’t only directed at their mobile devices game (and, more specifically, Android) it applies just the same. Here’s to seeing if LG can rise up and start besting Motorola’s and HTC’s offerings by the time the holiday season comes to a close.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Didn’t Moto just announce they’ll release 40 new Android phones this year? Add HTC and the rest of the manufacturers… someone at Tmo must be working really hard to make sure none of the good ones end up there.

  2. How many of these Android phones will use LG’s Retina Display?

  3. cant they make ONE good phone and sell it everywhere?

  4. rich & Rdx +1. The LG V and enV were cool great phones with great issues and I personally don’t like any LG HDTV’s soooo LG would have to build a 4″+ QWERTY FroYo out the gate phone for me to be interested. And even then…

  5. Oh yeah with Tmo just now starting to seel LG phones, I would assume that LG is gonna target us Tmo people.

  6. LG has been one of the most fiercely loyal WinMo supporters. Hopefully this signals a shift in their thinking.. Away from that dinosaur.

  7. I HATE LG phones. I have had 2 in the past 2 years and the build quality is shocking, and their after sale service is just as poor.
    Personally, I will continue to let HTC feed my Android desire.

  8. I would put LG phones above Samsung. We’ve had a few of each and the LG phones on Verizon like the Chocolate are beautifully built and get better call reception & signal strength than Samsung. They just need better software. I would certainly take a look at an Android they built if it were up to snuff. Better late than never.

  9. No custom UIs, please.

  10. LOlz,this is a great news for LG fans like me.I like LG for its design,after sales service and hardware.Now if lG combines these with android OS,I won’t hesitate to get one!Go LG!

  11. Replay to Ian: What you said is not true.LG phones are one of the most well-built phones(even mass produced).HTC phones are nice too.But do u notice that the built quality of every phone makers drops once they start to produce and sell more.I have htc legend and its built quality has dropped compared to my previous htc hero.The same thing happened to Nokia and Samsung too.LG phone quality are pretty good despite the fact that LG occupies 10% of global smartphone market which is still large compared to motorola,htc and apple.unless Apple and HTC have proper strategy,its built-quality will be compromised too.
