LG Mobile Developer Network: Look how complicated this is!

Yup, you read that right.

YES there is an LG Mobile Developer Network. Finally. Excellent.

Unfortunately it is stuck in the year 1997.

Yes indeed! If you’d like to get your application on to LG handsets, it’s as simple as:

1. Spend AGES writing a sodding proposal. (Ok so it’s only two pages…)

2. Formally submit the proposal to LG. (They do have an online system for this).

3. Submit a proposal and wait for fooking AGES. (I’m assuming)

4. The LG Business Proposal team spent AGES looking through your proposal. (I’m assuming)

5. Keep waiting for AGES. (I’m assuming)

6. If you are successful — that’s a big IF — you and LG’s Business Proposal team create a contract together.

7. Insert another few months of arsing about. (I’m assuming)

8. If you are LUCKY you will be able to distribute your software on the LG Mobile Developer Network, LG Mobile.com and MAYBE even get it pre-loaded.

Well that’s easy then.

Don’t hold your breath.

It looks rather complicated.

Has anyone you know been successful? If so, I’d like to know so we can shine some light on the process.
