LG Makes a Serious Commitment to Windows Mobile

Today at Mobile World Congress, LG announced their support for Microsoft’s Windows Mobile in a strong way. LG will make Microsoft’s Windows Mobile operating system the primary operating system for their smartphone devices. Over the next 4 years, LG will produce 50 different mobile devices powered by Microsoft’s Windows Mobile operating system. The bulk of these devices, approximately 25, will come in the 4th year. Leaving 25 other devices over the course of the next 3 years. If divided evenly over those 3 years it would be 8.3 units per year. I would expect that production would ramp up over the course of 3 years.

LG’s Windows Mobile news doesn’t stop there. They are also showing off 2 new devices. The first is a device called “HQ” that features a SureType QWERTY keyboard. From the information that I’ve been given, the HQ will have a 528MHz processor, 256MB ROM / 128MB RAM, a 240×320 non-touch screen, Quad-band with GPRS, Edge and UMTS. As well as 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 2 mega pixel camera.

The second device is called the “Eigen” and features the same 528MHz processor, a 240×400 touch screen, Quad-band with GPRS, Edge and UMTS. The Eigen also has 266MB ROM / 128MB RAM, FM Radio, 3G, WiFi, a 5 mega pixel camera, and of course, Bluetooth.

You can check out some pictures of both of these devices below.
