LG to Ship Windows Phone 7 Series Handset in September

Finally we are hearing some news about when Windows Phone 7 Series handsets will be shipping. From what we have heard it seems like LG are to be one of the first, if not the first, to have some hardware ship later on this year sometime between September and November. At this point there are no official dates and most of it will probably be related to when Microsoft [MSFT] can get the final build ready and waiting to ship.

The information came from a sitdown meeting with LG Mobile in Hong Kong where the dates were revealed.

The official time line given by Microsoft is that it will be ready in time for the holidays (ie, Christmas), so lets hope they can get their act together and release the OS a little earlier to meet the LG hardware.

At this point I am guessing that LG will be releasing a chassis-1 model of the phone which means it will have a large touch-screen along with a 1GHz (perhaps 1.5GHz by launch date) Snapdragon processor.
