MWC 2010: LG rules out own mobile phone OS

LG will not developing its own operating system, the Korean mobile phone giant has revealed.

The company's plans were revealed this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in a keynote speech from LG's Chief Executive Scott Ahn.

Mr Ahn said "Our strategy is not to make an independent mobile platform of our own at least for the next two to three years.

"It is difficult for a single company to dominate the entire ecosystem."

The firm's figurehead also confirmed that LG would be focusing its efforts on producing smartphones based on Windows Phone 7 Series and Google Android.

LG's local rival Samsung has taken a different approach, choosing to launch its own mobile OS at MWC 2010.

Meanwhile the partnership between Nokia and Intel that produced Meego has seen another significant contender added to the list of mobile platforms on the market.
