It looks like the business relationship between Google and LG is being strengthened. Larry Page met with LG Electronics CEO Koo Bon-joon in Seoul last week. Supposedly, they discussed the future relationship between the two companies and worked out ways to improve their bond. They also supposedly discussed future LG Nexus devices, which indirectly confirms we will see more of them in the future.
It also appears that LG wants to commit more fully to a Google ecosystem, and wants to dive into other Google products like Google TV and Google Glass. Specifically LG intends to implement Google TV directly into their next-gen OLED displays. Apparently, LG has been doing a remarkable job at staying competitive and are now firmly in third place world-wide in mobile behind Apple and Samsung. Besides the LG-made Nexus 4 devices selling well, the manufacturer has also done well internationally selling the LG Optimus G and Optimus G Pro.
It's good to see LG making strides to close the gap on Samsung and Apple. It would be a shame if the mobile manufacturing world degraded to a duopoly like the U.S. almost has in the carrier world with Verizon and AT&T.
