    I think you’re right, Senthil – at present LG seems to be playing “wait and see”, like Huawei and others. It’ll be interesting to see what happens if and when they decide to take the plunger seriously into this market!

    I still own that phone. I’ve been using LG first Windows Phone 7 smartphone “LG Optimus 7″ for three years up to now, I’m so glad with it and the final 7.8 update that I see no reason to change it but this new one you’re talking about.
