LAS VEGAS--LG didn't reveal too much about its mobile phone strategy at Wednesday's 8 a.m. press conference at CES, but it did say it'll roll out even more smartphones in 2010 than in previous years, with a big shout-out to Windows Mobile 7 in the mix.

LG also proudly pointed out that it launched around 17 million messaging phones last year, so it's clearly not going to leave that category behind. In fact, it let slip that it'll be announcing two new feature phones tomorrow morning, so we'll definitely keep an eye out for that.

Aside from that, LG didn't announce anything too new phone-wise--it touted the LG BL40 Chocolate phone and the LG Expo with the pico projector, both of which were launched last year.
