LG teases that it will be unveiling a new series. Although it doesn’t drop any clues when it plans to lift the lid on its new smartphones, Mobile World Congress is just around the corner. So we’re likely to see the devices by then.
The Korean firm’s Facebook page, LG posted a teaser image wrapped in a ribbon. Within the image is a tagline that reads, “New series will be unveiled.”
The picture credit reads, “See what surprise LG has in store for you this time, with an unexpected distinction.”
Despite the teaser, it doesn’t look like LG customers are happy. On the same page, one reader writes, “why don’t you try to sell more nexus 4?”
Another writes, “No one wants any surprise other than YOU to update the software of your other phones, like the Optimus 3D. NO WAY YOU GET YOUR MONEY FROM ME!”
Another writes, “Where are the updates? LG LIE’S GOOD.”
The last one writes, “LG is still forgetting the essential for any business. KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS HAPPY!!!”
So what should we expect from LG at MWC 2013? It’s hard to say for sure. Unlike HTC’s M7, we’ve seen numerous leaks of the handset on the internet. However, there are no leaks concerning the Korean firm.
Mobile World Congress kicks off on the 24th of February. We’ll know by then what LG has in store for us.

It looks like the Japanese tech giant is closely watching how Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform does in the market. If handsets such as the HTC Titan and Nokia Lumia 800 gain momentum, Sony might consider launching its own Windows Phone.
In an interview with PhoneArena at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Stephen Sneeden, Product Marketing Manager at Sony, said that Sony was closely keeping an eye at the successes of the Windows Phone platform.
Currently, there are a number of device manufacturers that create devices running on the platform. These include Nokia, HTC, Samsung, and LG. If in case Windows Phone shows an upward trend, Sony might just jump on the bandwagon.
Although Sneeden did say that they were closely keeping an eye on Windows Phone’s success, there’s no way of telling when the company would create their own device running the operating system. Since the former Sony Ericsson failed to make a significant impact on the market, expect the company to make more Android handsets such as the XPERIA S and XPERIA U.
Do you think Sony will launch a Windows Phone-powered handset in the future? Do you think Microsoft’s Windows Phone will be a success? Give us your thoughts.
When we think of Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, the first mobile phone manufacturer that comes to mind is Nokia and its Lumia 800. However, there are also a number of Android manufacturers that also make Windows Phone handsets. An example is HTC and its Windows Phone-powered Titan. Now, it looks like ASUS plans to do the same.
ASUS is known for its Android devices such as the quad-core Transformer Prime. However, speaking to Pocket Lint at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, global head of Asus Handheld Division, Benson Lin, said, “We are very close with Microsoft. When we think it is the right time of course we will do it.”
Although the exec hinted ASUS’ plans of launching a Windows Phone handset, we might have to wait longer until this becomes reality. After all, the company is putting all of its efforts on its Android devices such as the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Padfone as well as the Transformer Prime tablet.
However, if ASUS were to manufacture Windows Phone devices that are at par with the level of ingenuity offered by its Android gadgets, we’re almost certain the Taiwan-based tech firm will yet again steal the show.
Would you be interested in Windows Phone-powered devices made by ASUS, or do you think they should just stick to Android? Give us your thoughts.
