Several LG Windows Phone 7 handsets to be released this year: first one in September? Nope

According to LG’s PR Ken Hong the company is expected to launch its first Windows phone 7 device in September (this sounds a bit early given that the OS isn’t expected to launch before October 7th) and will follow up with other WP7 handsets before the year end. As I have reported several times here, LG is the primary OEM parter for Windows Phone 7 and Microsoft currently has an dedicated LG Team in Redmond working on devices. Other than the LG Panther we can probably expect to see the LG C900 and LG E900.

UPDATE: Ken Hong just told me that he told IDG “around end of the Q3″ and not in “September”!

    Will probably flop as hard as Windows Phone Kin. that do not have the device and the interface is of course sad. No flash, multitasking, copy and paste. I’d rather take an Iphone but preferably an Android
