Windows 7 Phone (formerly WIndows Mobile) devices haven’t been on my radar for over a year or two. It seemed like Microsoft was allowing their mobile operating system to go down the same path the Palm – into obscurity. But now they are offering an updated OS and a variety of handsets that could put them back on the map. One such device is the LG Optimus 7 from LG Electronics. More info on this phone after the jump.
The LG Optimus 7 has a nice list of hardware and software features:
- 3.8 inch WVGA LCD display with 800×480 pixels
- 16GB of internal memory
- 1500mAh removable battery
- 5MP camera with special panoramic mode and 720p video capture
- 3 physical buttons on the front
The buttons on the front really capture my interest. Don’t get me wrong, I love touch screens, but I’m still holding on to the past with buttons. That’s one reason why I picked the Droid X over the HTC Incredible.
I’m also interested in the special camera features like the panoramic mode that allows you to stitch together a full 360-degree landscape scene. There’s also a feature called Intelligent Shot, which is supposed to automatically adjust settings based on your environment.
I’ve yet to get my hands on a Windows 7 Phone device, so I can’t comment on the OS. It does look very different than good old Windows Mobile 6.5 though with it’s Zune style interface.
