Here it is, folks. Verizon's upcoming (and so-far unannounced) LG Lancet. The first Windows Phone from LG in years and it looks to bring some of its Android magic to the wide-world of Microsoft.

The information comes to Windows Central via the official e-brochure and spec sheet for the device.

The LG Lancet features an "ergonomic design" with rounded edges, 4.5-inch (854x480) TFT display, and an 8 MP rear camera. For a processor, users are looking at a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU and presumably 1 GB of RAM. The full specifications can are found below.

Well, well, well. After dropping Windows Phone a few years ago it looks like LG is set to return. The South Korean electronics manufacturer is prepping a Windows Phone 8.1 handset if a recent press render is to be believed. Serial leakster @evleaks has shared an image of an alleged LG handset with Windows Phone 8.1.

In case you still didn’t agree that Windows Phone is the third ecosystem in the smartphone industry, the latest validation comes from comScore’s report of the U.S. smartphone subscriber market share ending January 2014.

While Blackberry's market share is on the decline, Microsoft held steady and found themselves holding the third spot in the latest survey behind Android and Apple.

LG doesn’t get a lot of name drops here on Windows Phone Central. At one point LG was making Windows Phone devices, but stopped making them after poor response and sales. They haven’t been particularly strong in laptops or tablets either, but a few devices of theirs surprised us this week at CES. Their ultrabook, called the Ultra PC, left us with a good first impression. Here’s a quick look at another interesting machine from LG – the Tab-Book 2.

We just stopped by the LG booth here at CES and we’re surprised by their latest ultrabook. It’s called the Ultra PC (model 13Z940) and we we’re actually blown away by the little machine. It’s super light, has a gorgeous display, and looks great. It’s only knock is that it lacks a touch screen, but that could easily be seen as a bonus by some (We’re looking at you Mary Jo). Here’s our hands-on with this interesting ultrabook.

LG has informed CNET the company has no immediate plans to support Windows Phone 8 with new hardware. While the company remains open to using Microsoft's platform in the future, it doesn't see high enough demand for another smartphone to be released. This sounds odd since Samsung (also arguably a rather conservative OEM partner) is pushing its ATIV S and Odyssey Windows Phones.

Could LG be releasing some new Windows Phone 8 hardware this year? According to the Korea Times, citing a senior executive from one of LG’s local partners, the answer is ‘yes’.

The paper reveals the tidbit under the bigger news of LGs ambitions for 2013, including the goal of selling 75 million handsets, which is no small feat even with Android seemingly doing so well.  

LG famously had cold feet with Microsoft last year over the new OS and although they were initially expected to release new hardware they backed out. That was even after Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer reportedly try to persuade the massive Korean company otherwise.

The LG HBS-700 Bluetooth Headset is an impressive, yet odd looking, headset option for your Windows Phone. While the design catches your attention, the headset's performance makes a very good first impression that lasts.

The HBS-700 is comfortable to wear, has really nice sound quality, is water resistant, and has multipoint capability. While we had reservations on the LG HBS-700, it turns out to be an exceptional wireless headset for your Windows Phone and any other Bluetooth device you may have.

Shed a tear for LG?

Back in April, we heard that LG was going to focus their efforts on making Android phones, prompting us to wonder if we would see any Windows Phone 8 devices from the Korean manufacturer at all. Today at their official Optimus G launch, CEO Park Jong Seok seemed to lean toward the negative, saying that LG has "no specific plans for other mobile platforms." While that doesn't completely rule out Windows Phone 8 all together, it sure doesn't sound promising.

LG made a couple of popular WP7 devices, the Quantum, which was one of only three QWERTY sliders to use Windows Phone, and the Optimus 7. Other LG models include the Jil Sander E906, the so-called "fashion phone" and the E740 prototype, which never saw the light of day.

The team over at Plaffo have been experiencing issues with the LG Optimus 7. The Windows Phone would lock when booting and appear to 'freeze' on the LG logo, rendering the device useless. The problem is reportedly due to faulty boards in affected smartphones, but one would assume a simple return would solve everything with a shiny new Optimus 7, right? Wrong, or so it seems anyway.
