As LG Electronics looks to move back into the phone market in Australia, it will be without a Windows smartphone offering.

Overnight the Company said that they are looking to drop their range of Windows based phones due to Nokia’s tie-in with Microsoft.

LG is the first manufacturer to openly state it’s looking at making less of a commitment the Microsoft OS and their new Windows 8 offering.

Speaking in Korean LG exewcutives confirmed that it has no intentions to make another Windows Phone handset in the near future, but will continue to evaluate the platform through its R&D platform.

According to the Korea Herald, LG said: “The total unit of Windows Phone sold in the global market is not a meaningful figure,” with no more plans to bring out another LG-monikered handset on Microsoft’s platform.
Brighter than the rest

Nokia has been the most visible manufacturer on the Windows Phone platform since signing a collaboration with the brand a year ago, in a move some believed would alienate others like HTC and Samsung.
