LG is brushing off speculation that it plans to abandon the Windows Phone platform.
The Korean electronics giant has reaffirmed its commitment to work with Microsoft following a local media report which suggested the two companies were headed for showdown talks on the future of their smartphone partnership.
LG said in a statement provided to V3 that while they have no Windows Phone models in its pipeline, the company remains interested in the mobile OS.
"At the moment, LG is primarily focusing on developing Android-equipped smartphones. Contrary to what some articles have said, LG is not giving up on Windows Phones," said global communications director for LG Electronics Ken Hong.
"Although we currently don't have a new Windows device in the pipeline, that is simply because demand for Android devices is so strong."
Reports from market research firm ComScore showed that Windows only held a 3.9 per cent US market share in February compared to a 50 per cent share by Android in the same month.
However, Windows Phone sales figures may soon be changing as companies like Nokia begin releasing the likes of the Lumia 900.
According to Gartner vice president of research Carolina Milanesi, the new Lumia may be the catalyst that reinvigorates the Windows Mobile platform.
"LG so far has not been very successful with Android and if Nokia can start driving some volume and increase developers interest, LG might look at reinvesting in this platform," Milanesi told V3.
"Operators might also look at LG to supply cheaper smartphones on the Windows platform given the relatively weakness of the Nokia brand in the US."
