Unlike their fellow Korean handset maker Samsung, LG apparently is not interested in developing an OS of their own for use in their phone collection.
This is what they disclosed to the press during the recent MWC event in Barcelona. If you may recall, it was at the same event that bitter rival Samsung launched their first handset (Samsung Wave S8500) that's powered by their proprietary OS called Bada. LG currently has no plans of following in their rival’s footsteps.
According to Yonhap news, Skott Ahn, head of LG’s handset division, had this to say about building their own proprietary OS:
Our strategy is not to make an independent mobile platform of our own at least for the next two to three years.
Instead, their upcoming will either have Android as its OS or Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7 platform running the show.
It would have been nice to see if LG could actually match Samsung in the mobile OS department, but alas, I guess it's not meant to be. We’ll have to wait and see two to three years from now if the showdown between the two rivaling phone manufacturers will actually materialize.
