LG announced that it has sold 10 million of its L-Series smartphones to date. The number includes the entire range from the entry-level LG Optimus L3, through the Optimus L5 and Optimus L7, all the way to the imposing looking Optimus L9.

While LG calls the eight-figure sales number a “modest milestone”, it still pats itself on the back for it. The official press release points out the fresh styling of the range, the high quality displays of the handsets , as well as LG’s proprietary UX features as the main reason for its commercial success.

LG’s L-Series broke cover during MWC 2012. The devices in the range are available in 50 markets worldwide.

LG Optimus 2X owners in Europe can finally breath a sigh of relief! After nearly half a year of it-will-get-it-it-won’t-get-it drama, the former LG flagship finally started receiving its ICS update.

The firmware version of the update ROM is V30a. It brings the Ice Cream Sandwich sweetness, garnished with the latest LG launcher.

You can get it from the LG update tool right away. It seems, though, that the carrier-locked Optimus 2X versions will have to wait a while longer to join the fun.

LG already updated the South Korean cousin of the Optimus 2X, so it was about time for European users to get the same treatment. At this point though, it seems almost certain that ICS will be the end of the road for the first dual-core smartphone – it is highly unlikely that it will ever catch the Jelly Bean train.

Here’s hoping that LG has learned a valuable lesson here and will do better with the Optimus G and the Optimus 4X HD.

We got a lot of good news about the Windows Phone 7.8 update lately, but every streak comes to an end as we now have a particularly unpleasant piece of information to share with you. TheLG Optimus 7, which was one of the first Windows Phone handsets and is currently running version 7.5 of the OS, will not be getting updated to version 7.8.

This info comes from LG’s branch in Poland and may not apply to all regions, but LG has not officially announced anything else regarding the Optimus G.

This move shouldn’t come as a big surprise as LG decided to step away from Windows Phone to focus on Android (the company won’t be releasing Windows Phone 8 handsets).
