LG's Optimus LTE has passed the million sales milestone, having been launched at the beginning of October last year. The figure was anticipated by the company's CEO Park Jong-seok in an interview with Reuters earlier this month, who pointed to strong sales of the phone leading to improved fourth quarter results. It's the latest in a line of big numbers for the handset, despite currently only being available in the USA, Canada, Japan, and South Korea. Sales in South Korea alone are pegged at 600,000, which makes it the most popular LTE handset in the country, according to LG. These solid sales are good news for the company as it struggles to retain its position as the third largest cellphone manufacturer, but they pale in comparison to the huge numbers achieved by the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S II.
