Oh goodness, LG have expressed their interest in manufacturing the next Nexus device to Google. This surely can’t be good. Here’s what LG have said to CNET over in Barcelona.
“We’re heavily in discussions,” Ramchan Woo, head of LG’s smartphone division, told CNET in an interview. “We’re working on it.”
If you’re a regular listener to the Ausdroid Podcast you’ll understand our lack of enthusiasm. If you’re not, just take a look at LG’s track record of Android devices — they’re nearly all crap; even some of the carriers here don’t want to pick up their devices.
To give LG the benefit of the doubt (ughh..) it might be good for them to have Google stick their boot into them to lift their game for a Nexus device. Even if it’s just to get rid of their stupid custom Android overlay. What are your thoughts on LG making a Nexus device?
