Half of LG smartphones to use Android

LG revealed at CES that about half of its new smartphones will use the Google Android operating system.
As the Korea Herald reports, LG CEO Nam Yong reportedly said yesterday that while LG will have smart phones running on Windows Mobile, "about 50 percent of our smart phone models will run on Android." Now, that's not so hard to believe considering the number of LG Android phones we've already seen or heard about, but it is fairly surprising in light of the deal LG and Microsoft announced back at MWC last year, which supposedly made Windows Mobile LG's "primary smartphone OS."
