My husband is a great guy with only one tiny flaw - he can't remember more than three things on a list.  So if I ask him to go to the store and pick up eggs, milk, cheese, and bread, I'll only get 3 of them or I'll get a call asking what he was [...]

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.
