LG's prototype Windows Phone 7 Series handset gets previewed during the Engadget Show
Remember how we reported that LG was going to be fast and on track in getting a Windows Phone 7 Series handset out to the market as early as September? Well, it looks like they're really adamant on hitting that target date after what was witnessed during the Engadget Show. In attendance and sitting up front with the Engadget crew was Microsoft's Aaron Woodman who had a little surprise under his sleeves for the guests in the crowd. He pulled out LG's first Windows Phone 7 Series pre-production prototype that looks to be one impressive device which is said to be slightly thicker than the iPhone and Nexus One – but just remember that it actually tacks on a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard. Additionally you'll notice the dedicated hardware camera, volume, and power buttons with the back, home, and search buttons that are the requirements for Windows Phone 7 Series. As far as the rest of the goodies, it sports a 5-megapixel camera with flash and a 3.5mm headset jack for all those music junkies. It's not even March and it looks like that on and off again relationship that LG had with Microsoft looks to be solid once again – putting those rumors to rest as LG commences its trek.

Yeah looks ok.. but nothing new seen regarding the OS. And damn, that MS guy kept saying 'more info at mix10'. Even at the question if the HD2 will get an upgrade.. well, at least it is not a hard 'no!'. And more and more things are showing the HD2 will get the upgrade. So nothing to worry about :D
