No Bada competitor from LG as the Korean handset manufacturer has stated publicly that it will not develop its own proprietary smartphone OS. Though it did not rule out the possibility entirely, Scott Ahn, Vice President of LG’s Mobile Business unit, confirmed that LG’s strategy for the next two to three years does not include the development of a proprietary mobile OS. Rather than go on its own, LG will remain committed to producing smartphones powered by Windows Phone 7 Series and Android; focusing on the device itself, specialized content, and extra services to distinguish its handsets from the competition. With a prediction that does not bode well for Bada, MeeGo and the like, Ahn forecasts that only three mobile platforms will be left standing in the end — Windows Phone, Android and the iPhone OS. Do you agree or disagree with this somewhat somber projection?
