LG working on a Windows Phone 8 smartphone?

South Korean manufacturer LG is currently working on a Windows Phone 8 smartphone, according to reports.

In an interview with Light Reading India, LG India’s managing director, Soon H Kwon, said that the smartphone was currently in R&D. LG has a number of Windows Phone smartphones and has until now reported that it has no plans to support Microsoft’s newest operating system.

If the manufacturer decides to add a Windows Phone 8 to its collection, it will join other manufacturers that are driving business-standard mobile devices that combine the appeal of a consumer device with enterprise-grade security capabilities.

The news comes as Lenovo adds to its range of business-grade Windows 8 devices with the launch of its new multimode tablet, the ThinkPad 10, and rumours that Microsoft will be adding to its own product range and launching the Surface Mini at its event on 20 May.
