LG Electronics says to put tablet development on the back burner for now and ocus on smartphones. Is the reason for that Microsoft Surface?
Is LG the first Microsoft partner to react negatively to the Microsoft Surface announcement? Bloomberg carries a report today that says that LG is sidelining tablet development. This would mean LG is not going to invest in Windows 8 tablets. Ken Hong, a spokesman for LG said: "We’ve decided to put all new tablet development on the back burner for the time being in order to focus on smartphones." He added: "LG doesn’t see Surface competing with anything we’re focusing on at the moment."

The way I read the last sentence is that LG sees no point in making a Windows 8 tablet if Microsoft sells their own. LG did not make much headway in the tablet market so far, but Windows 8 would be a reason to restart. The question is now what Samsung's reaction is to the Microsoft Surface tablets?
