LG Windows Phone 7 Series Handset Revealed

Last week we mentioned that LG were readying the first Windows Phone 7 Series handset ready for launch sometime between September and November this year.

Engadget managed to take a look at the handset whilst filming the Engadget Show. A quick look at the picture above shows that it appears to have the right things in place to qualify as a Windows Phone 7 Series handset such as it having 3 hardware buttons below the screen and a large high-res screen that’s capacitive touch.

The new LG phone has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for text input which will be welcomed by some. The three standard buttons that are a requirement are back, home and search. Several other buttons around the edges such as volume, power and a dedicated camera button are also present.

The phone it’s self, even though a slide out QWERTY phone, is just marginally thicker than an Apple iPhone or Nexus one according to Engadget. The camera as expected can capture images at 5 megapixels.

Overall it looks to be an impressive phone and although not much information is available due to obvious reasons that it’s still several months away from launch and a lot can change in that time, it is good to start seeing what hardware will function like and what we can expect from the new generation of Windows Mobile phones.
