CES 2011: Windows Phone Sales Better Than Expected Says LG

Yesterday during my conversation with LG, they confirmed that the sales of their Windows Phone devices have been strong and “better than expected”. Further, of the two models available in Canada, the Quantum (Bell) and Optimus 7 (Telus), the non-keyboard Optimus 7 has seen greater sales than the QWERTY enabled Quantum. There is no indication if this is related to differences in the network or simply a public desire for non-keyboard devices. When I pressed LG about future Windows Phone based devices, they refused to comment. However, they did say that they have a number of other designs and have been working with carriers to bring these to the consumer. Based on current agreements with carriers, you may see a new Windows Phone 7 device in early Q3.

    I’ve been using the LG Optimus7 since trading it for my Surround. I’m really impressed with the LG. It is very solid. It even has a metal back and a button release which is very nice when switching SIM cards between deices regularly. The screen quality is very good, even outdoors.Previously I would never have gone down the LG road. If they continue to make smartphones like this they are going to do well.

    That Quantum seems kinda heavy though. I suppose if you are trying to loose weight, carrying it around could be a good workout. ;)
