Well, it seems that congratulations are in order for the LG E740. The Windows Phone powered smartphone  received its Bluetooth SIG certification on January 11th, which moves it closer to launch. According to WMPoweruser, the device could be the LG Fantasy, which is expected to hit the market this quarter with Windows Phone Mango aboard, a 4 inch IPS display and a front-facing camera. The phone is allegedly a high-end device and could be the Korean manufacturer's initial second-gen Windows Phone model.

As for the LG E740, LG's user agent site shows that it uses IE9, confirming it is a Windows Phone Mango device and is more evidence that the model could be the LG Fantasy. We should know for sure when the current quarter becomes history.

What an appropriate name for a smartphone. Every device, every spec, even the hardware...we're all looking for a 'fantasy' device. They should all carry that moniker.

Well if the screen iscgoodcenough than I'll surely consider buying one, I just hope LG's application suite is good enough.

The rumor about 4 months ago was that this was CDMA. Wonder if that is true, and what that means for a launch? If it is not LTE enabled, and I have seen nothing to hint it is, than Sprint or maybe a smaller CDMA carrier like U.S. Cellular are the only options. LG is sure late to this party.

I really believe WP could be a huge benefit to LG, as they are so weak in getting Android handsets that compete with the big Dawgs. WP really compliments a manufacturer that is poor at developing their own UI that stands out.
