    Not likely since they apparently have not been able to get enough traction to satisfy them, hence the focus shift to TV's.

    I think it sounds like a smart move. It's hard to get past everyone's infatuation with Samsung right now. I don't understand the love affair. 800,000 Galaxy watches sold is a joke.

    Anyways back to LG. They are focusing more resources on TVs but keeping phone R&D the same, I like it. Gaining traction with TVs can help their other divisions in the long term.

    In a weird way...

    ...is this good news for webOS?

    The phones are all Android (or mainly).

    webOS is on TV's.

    Not hopeful for an LG webOS phone, but if the TV development can help webOS-Ports...?

    I know right. Samsung makes the crappiest stuff imaginable. And everyone's all like "No their great because I like having an 8" phone"

    That's exactly what I've been saying for years about people wanting phones and tablets, who cares for a silly television from a company like LG . Everyone(including myself) wishes is for more smartphones/tablets to be powered by WebOS, but of course being realistic about the situation with LG we can't expect much of an appliance company that only what knows what to do is make refrigerators, washers and follow Google footsteps because like someone in the technology world said: "its easier to copy than to innovate". (so basically what I'm trying to say, I don't think that LG could be smart enough to know how to operate something as innovative and powerful WebOS).

    It might be a bit of a harsh reality, but as much as I don't like for it to be true LG simply don't care about WebOS or believes its potential as operating system(in the mobile market) beyond consumer electronics devices which again its sad because of the fact that WebOS is pretty much dead as a mobile operating system in the hands of LG. In my opinion, webOS will bring nothing new to the television market or people will not line up for days around best-buy or other stores like Apple fans do around an Apple Store to by an iPhone, and beyond the interface and what features it offer to consumers, in the end no one will care much about an LG WebOS TV.

    it indicates the significant trouble companies not named Apple or Samsung have in getting their products to gain popularity.
    .. actually, no, i'd say that it indicates that they just released a pair of flagship phones, so those guys would otherwise be sitting idle while R&D comes up with the next big thing in their phone line. Just a guess. The author of the article seems pretty pessimistic.

    If you hated webOS on TV, and it succeeded,would that not still be good news? Or is that a situation where one says "YOU SHOULDN'T LIKE WHAT I DON'T LIKE" :-)

    The only people I know who've ever even heard of LG are people in the cell phone business. LG handsets from the era of digital cellular through to the early smartphone era are just about as legendary as Nokia handsets from just before the era of digital cellular.

    Even if your product never has people lined up outside a store to get it on launch day, doesn't mean you can't succeed at something.

    Assuming it still remotely resembles webOS, yes. That's a big assumption though. In fact now that I'm thinking about it I don't recall LG even saying anything about webOS on their TVs. Just a new "smart" TV. I would have to double check that though.

    I have a smart tv and to be honest all smart tvs on the market are horrible! LG has a chance to get this right. So who cares if they lower their smartphone workforce if LG can make a semi-affordable smart tv and sell them like hotcakes this benefits us webos name will be back on the market (if webos is the same mostly) so lets encourage it! if the tv is successful then they will expand the os to smartphones it would be stupid of them not to,
