Contrary to the popular belief that LG was going to ship its first Windows Phone 7 (which I later corrected after getting in contact with LG’sPR) the south Korean company is said to be on track to launch the first WP7 device in October in Europe. The first handset will sport a 3.8″ screen and no hardware keyboard which means that it will either be the LG C900 or LG E900. LG will then launch the first device in the US in November ( with hardware keyboards similar to the LG Panther GW910). The LG Windows Phone 7device will be part of the Optimus line of smartphone along side the company’s Android Offerings.
The company told Korean reporters it expects WP7 to outperform the two rival smartphone operating systems, as well as giving users compatibility with existing Microsoft Office programs such as Word and Excel.
