A joint statement from the two companies says that "LG and Microsoft will subsidise a revolving portfolio of hand-picked applications, providing free access to quality applications that take advantage of the unique features and design of Windows Phone 7."

The scheme, which promises top apps, is also aimed to give selected developers platform to market their apps, by offering them for free for the 60 days.

The statement suggests that the partnership will continue should LG release any more WP7 handsets, but right now the Optimus 7 is the only device in the portfolio.
