Quite improbable.
LG is one of the two big companies in korea, they make electronics in genera.
As well, many (most) cellphone manufacturers use LG displays on their phones (apple's retina display is made by LG).

I wonder if microsoft will be able to push the nokia brand to it's former status.

I guess time will tell. The real question is, can and will Microsoft keep Nokia on the path to their form glory. Not that I really had an issue with Ballmer, but hopefully whoever takes his place, I'm thinking Elop, will keep them on a good path. He already has a great mindset from being with the head of Nokia. They promote will and make great devices. With him in charge, I see an OS and hardware integration that would rival that of Android or iOS. What we should and hopefully see is faster updates, better developer support and better customization options.

Regardless of what people think about Microsoft, I don't see them spending all this money to just let Windows Phone fall to the way side. So, everyone who thinks that the should just...

My windows phone was the best i ever had. Ran smooth and fast the whole two years that I had it. Just had no apps.... It's a disappointment. I think developer support is the only thing keeping windows phones back.

I have faith that Microsoft can take Nokia back to its former status. As they do make quality phones, the operating system is getting there, and the camera software and features on the Nokia phones is ridiculous I am jealous of the phones camera software capability.

Once WP8 gets the apps caught up at least with the most important ones like social networking, baking, and media streaming services they are going to be one of the top OS. Live tiles are amazing and the whole concept of grouping features on the phones is genius.

Microsoft will not take Nokia back to its former status. That Nokia devices section is GONE. It will be Microsoft being able to replicated Nokia's former glory which will be their attempt. What is left of Nokia won't be making phones for a long time.
