While LG’s mobile division may have gotten off to a rocky start this year, they aren’t going to just wait while every other competitor with Android soars in their endeavors. In an attempt to streamline their portfolio, LG’s looking to cut their handset offering in half – 70 models down from 145 – in order to more easily put the spotlight on some flagship devices they’re most certainly going to be brewing up soon.
Out of those 70 models, 20 will be smartphones. Out of those 20? 15 will be running Android. They’ve already stated they wanted to release 20 new Android handsets this year, and with a few of them already released and doing quite decent for themselves on the market, the remainder of the goal should hopefully get things turned back around for their failing division.
They’re projecting to sell 6 million smartphones before the year is over: 30% of them would be running Windows Mobile or Windows Phone 7, while the other 70% will be Android based. Sounds good to us.
