LG jumps onto Windows Phone 8 bandwagon

According to the Korea Times, LG is planning the Windows Phone 8 push as part of a wider strategy to boost phone shipments in 2013. LG hopes to ship 75 million phones this year, up from 55 million in 2012.

The report also states that LG will enter the phablet space, with a 5.5-inch 1080p device coming in February.
