LG planning 20 Android phones in next 6 months

HTC, Motorola, and Samsung are the three juggernauts of the Android phone world. So what’s the deal with LG? So far, they don’t have much to show for in the US, except the LG Ally. On top of that, their first-quarter smartphone profit sales have dropped 6.7 percent from last year. Since the Android market is starting to become insanely lucrative, they’ve decided to get serious and have released a statement saying that 20 LG Android powered devices will be rolled out before the end of the year. Now, it’s hard to say how many of those phones will make it to the US, but we should expect to see at least a few. [via Unwired View]

Update: It appears that LG's 20 new smartphones won't all be running Android.  Android Central commenter On2Vegas points us to a comment on a story at GigaOm from Ken Hong at LG Electronics in Seoul.  According to Ken no solid numbers for the Android platform as the "portfolio is still in flux".  Thanks On2Vegas!
