One of the major gripes that you might have with your current smartphone could be the lack of a software upgrade due to the carrier or phone manufacturer. Well, LG intends to put your worries at rest when it comes to their line of Android-powered handsets by pledging to provide a clear upgrade path for owners of its Optimus smartphones. LG fully intends to offer at minimum a one-level upgrade for all of its Optimus smartphones that roll out this year – and beyond, of course. If that doesn’t happen, then you can always look for Kenneth Hong, Director of Global Communications for LG Electronics. At least you know you won’t be left behind for at least one software level of upgrade, but we would be happier if that assurance was extended to the entire handset’s lifetime. Will such an offer actually entice you to jump over to LG’s Android camp?
