LG’s reluctance to embrace Windows Phone 8 underscores the difficulties that the platform faces with both consumers and vendor partners. LG was one of the early partners that signed on with Microsoft, releasing the LG Quantum in the first wave of Windows Phone devices. Microsoft’s has a great relationship with Nokia, which is considered in the industry first among equals when it comes to Microsoft partners, has some vendors reassessing their own support for the operating system. Over the past year or so, LG has been focusing on Android and has started building phones running on Mozilla’s Firefox mobile OS. Bill Gates has been very open as of late about his disappointment in Microsoft’s mobile strategy. Windows Phone slow to catch on with consumers I am sure Microsoft would love to get another big phone vender like LG on board to sell there products.
