LG Optimus 7 announced as first Windows Phone 7 phone

Windows Phone 7 rush begins with LG Optimus 7

LG has become the first manufacturer to officially unveil a Windows Phone 7 handset, leaking its Optimus 7 device ahead of this afternoon’s global launch of the new mobile operating system from Microsoft.

With Phone 7 handsets expected to be announced from a number of key manufacturers today at the global launch of the new OS, LG has jumped the gun, breaking Microsoft’s handset embargo before quickly removing details of the new device from the LG Blog.

Despite only appearing briefly, the LG Optimus 7 has made a lasting impression as it is revealed the handset will feature a 3.8-inch WVGA, 800x480p capacitive touchscreen, 16GB of internal storage and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. This tasty looking device is also set to come equipped with Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity and a 1500mAh battery.

Not content with being the first Phone 7 handset announced, LG has revealed that its Microsoft powered device will feature a few custom features that will set it apart from other Phone 7 offerings including Scansearch, an augmented reality style real-time search assistant and Voice-to-text which as the name suggests will be a voice dictation service for transcribing texts, emails and other text based services.

Pricing details for the LG Optimus 7 have yet to be release. Stay tuned to T3.com and the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds throughout the day for all the latest on the official Windows Phone 7 launch and the range of handsets on offer.
