Windows Phone 7 handset made by LG gets snapped
A French Microsoft employee is said to be behind the posting on Flickr of an LG Windows Phone 7 model. While we might not know the specs of this specific handset, we do know the minimum hardware requirements for the OS. That means the pictured device should be running a 1GHz processor. Hmm, can we think of the name of such a beast? It should be a snap. The phone probably has a capacitive touchscreen with no less than 8GB of memory. Other features that are necessary for this to be a Windows Phone 7 unit include an accelerometer, a camera with at least 5MP and flash, a-GPS, a digital compass and light and proximity sensors. As HTC HD2 owners sadly found out, to be running Windows Phone 7, this LG model can have only 3 buttons for "back", "Windows" and "search"-all on the front. The first batch of phones powered by the new finger friendly OS will be available later this year and might include this beauty from the Korean based manufacturer.

Wow, could it be that WinMo phones are on the precipice of being relevant to consumers again?

I am a WINDOWS freak and may just end up waiting for one to arrive to AMERICA to purchase, overlooking the awesome ANDROID models and IPHONE part IV - ah well.

Its the same LG that Engadget had a long time back Didn't like it then, don't like it now. Looking forward to the HTC though.

It looks like the Windows Take over coming to a Holiday near you With the amount of Phones that are going to be supporting this OS around the world you might as well say Mission Accomplished for Microsoft. Just Think iPhone, RIM and Nokia only produce phones with their own OS on it. Now every other manifacture support a range of OS's and the Team is sitting at 3 to about 8 and with new players like Dell and HP adding to the market.. i can see IBM coming out with a phone running Windows 7 OS that will knock the socks off of all phones out.. i'm calling it IBM to be the first to launch a Mobile with a 2.4GHz Chip
