LG ends up in Q3 2012

LG ends up in Q3 2012

LG officially announced its financial results for Q3 2012, namely those relating to the period of time from July to September 2012, an increase of sales in the mobile industry at the expense of policy weak / absent updates for its devices.

LG Mobile Communications, in fact, closed the third quarter with total revenues of U.S. $ 19.42 million out of a total of 2.16 billion, a figure which rose by 5% in the fourth quarter year to date, selling 14 million smartphone with an increase of 9% over the previous quarter. The majority of smartphones, in any case, have been sold in Korea, USA and Japan, but it is LTE smartphone.

In total, LG had revenues of 195.06 million dollars and be able to have a lot of revenue and to be all things growing, and was very difficult for the company. This can make us realize how LG has endeavored to produce excellent products that have convinced people to buy. Unfortunately, LG has yet to understand one very important thing, that the software support with their devices. Sorry to repeat but unfortunately the facts speak for themselves.

Surely, with the new Nexus 4, LG will be able to be seen in a different light because it will be the official Google Android device then will enjoy secure updates from Google. And just from Google that LG could "learn" as, inter alia, Samsung has tried to do, in making software updates and support via their devices. We hope that is so.

We leave you, finally, to the official statement from LG regarding financial results for Q3 2012.
