14 minutes long Windows Phone 7 and Xbox Live video

Microsoft had a Windows Phone 7 booth at PAX 2010 this year with a couple of devices on display so it was only a matter of time before videos of the event start to pop up on YouTube. Tested.com has just upped a 14 mins long video of the OS in action followed by some hands-on action with several games (Ilomilo, The Harvest, Crackdown 2: Project Sunburst and Zombies!). There’s a couple of mistakes in the video (IE Mobile isn’t based on Webkit and there’s no Twitter integration in the People’s Hub). One thing you will notice thought is that the Samsung Taylor handset is a lot smoother/more responsive  than the LG GW910 (even-though they have the same CPU/GPU etc…). I’ve experienced the same thing every time I used both devices but keep in mind that these are pre-production prototypes. Check out the full video after the break:

Another blurry LG E900 video

I still can’t figure out why some people can’t capture well lit videos when they plan on posting it on YouTube, but if you don’t mind this kind of stuff here’s a short video of the LG E900 Windows Phone 7 handsets that basically doesn’t show anything new at all (other than the fact that it’s a E900…). Anyway, I can assure you that the device looks a lot better when handled and the screen is definitely brighter than the one on the LG GW910 / Panther. Video after the break:

The LG E900 Optimus 7 is Bluetooth certified

We already knew that the LG C900 was Bluetooth certified a bit more that 2 weeks ago but I decided to take a look today and found out that the LG E900 was apparently certified at the same time. Nothing really groundbreaking here but this sort of indicates that both handsets are currently the only Windows Phone 7 LG phones scheduled to be released this fall and that the LG GW910 / Panther will only be a developer handset (it isn’t BT certified). The LG E900 should be called the LG Optimus 7 once it’s officially announced (well, unless LG decides to change things up between now and then). I don’t know if this was ever mentioned before but the E900 features a 5MP camera (with a flash) just in case you wanted to know and definitely looks better (and bigger) in real life than what you have seen in the latest leaks.
