Despite a recent rumor that LG was working on a new Windows Phone — the LG Miracle — it turns out that the company will be exclusively debuting Android handsets at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
Speaking to All Things Digital, LG smartphone unit leader Ramchan Woo mentioned that LG has been experiencing “slower-than-hoped-for” sales of Windows Phone devices. He also noted that the demand for Windows Phones from carriers largely varied; some carriers wanted devices to balance out their Android offerings, while others were still struggling to sell Windows Phone devices.
“Some operators, they ask (for) Windows Phone to balance Android; however, the others, they are (still) figuring out how to sell Windows,” Woo said.
This doesn’t mean the rumored LG Miracle — which allegedly boasts a NOVA 4″ WVGA display, a 720p 4MP camera, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8GB of storage, and possibly NFC — will not come to fruition at all. This just means that LG has nothing to share about future Windows Phone handsets at MWC.
Another possibility here is that LG is waiting for the next major Windows Phone update, Apollo, to touch down later this year before launching any serious handsets that run the Windows Phone OS.
