Like notebook companies, smartphone makers have tried to make a name for themselves on the tablet market, with varying results.
Henceforth, on the mobile segment, it will focus on its smartphone business.
We must admit that this doesn't come as too great a surprise, not after the massive price cut that the Optimus Pad got last month.
All this probably means that the Optimus Pad LTE will never see the light of day after all.
From a businessman's perspective, abandoning a struggling branch of development makes sense, especially when the resources can be diverted easily towards other projects, in this case phones.
We can't help but wonder if it's really a perfect idea though, with Windows 8/RT so close. Sure, Microsoft's Surface may have come across as a bit daunting, but it's still just another addition to the tablet market in the end.
