Exactamundo. Whatever Microsoft's historical failings they now have a good mobile OS. The game is not over, particularly since RIM keeps on shooting itself in the foot.

If LG had put its heart into what it delivered that might have been a boost for both LG and Microsoft. Now the risk and the potential advantage belong to Nokia.

As a maker of yawny Android devices, LG has nothing much to recommend it. It'll be the freebie phone that some carriers give away. Good thing that smartphones aren't th eir bread and butter.

LG only have themselves to blame, making lacklustre handsets and then wondering why they did not sell. Windows Phone may be a small market in comparison to android or Apple but there are still several million sold. If LG had produced a decent phone they would have had a bigger bite of the market.

It simply cannot be denied that Windows Phone 7.x has become an utter failure.

Sales are "anaemic" across all brands of Windows Phone, including Samsung and Nokia (marginally higher, but still anaemic).

LG has a history of doing deals with Microsoft for Windows phones, going back to the Windows Mobile days, and got its fingers burned every time.

Quite frankly, I don't care that LG isn't supporting Windows Phone. It's not like they were making anything good for the platform anyway.
