Nam Yong, the CEO of LG Electronics, has said half of the company's new smartphones this year will run the Android operating system. This appears to conflict with the LG/Microsoft partnership announced in 2009, when LG said it would make Windows its "primary operating system" for smartphones.
"We will have smart phones running on Windows Mobile, but about 50 percent of our smart phone models will run on Android," reporters were told at last week's CES.
It's not known whether the CEO's comments have been misinterpreted or whether there's been a change to the Microsoft agreement. [Sources: YonhapNews.co.kr; Microsoft]
