LG Optimus 7 Software Tour

Here’s a short software tour of the LG Optimus 7  Windows Phone 7 device. I’ve already shown you the ScanSearch and Panorama application in action last week so you should already be familiar with what’s on the device. You can also check out the screen comparison videos here and here  and also the performance videos here and here. As with all the WP7 devices currently on the market, the Optimus 7 doesn’t disappoint in terms of overall performance and LG really did a great job differentiating it’s WP7 offerings with some pretty good exclusive applications. Video after the break:

LG Optimus 7 Scansearch Augmented Reality application Demo

Here’s one more LG Optimus 7 video, this time it’s a brief demo of the Scansearch Augmented Reality application found on LG’s Windows Phone 7 devices like the Optimus 7 and Optimus 7 Q/Quantum. You’ve already seen it more than a month ago in my Optimus 7 hands-on preview but I decided to shoot another one again. to talk about some I discovered while plying with the LG GW910 prototype. What’s interesting here isthe fact that this app (on the Optimus 7) seems to be  a trimmed down version of the realapplication (which is also availalbe on the iPhone). Sounds weird right? Well check out the pictures after the break:

One more LG Optimus 7 and Optimus Q advertising video

I’m guessing that this promo video is a a better fit for the European market compared the previous ones which looked more like Asia-centric ads. I wonder if OEMs will also have their own TV spots or if everything will be handled by the carriers. Anyway, watch the LG Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q in action after the break:

LG Optimus 7 hands-on preview

It’s now the LG Optimus 7′s turn to get the hands-on treatment. This Windows Phone 7 device is probably the one that will be released with the most differentiating software. Unlike the Samsung Omnia 7 which only features a simple Now hub and the HTC devices that have the HTC Hub and surround sound the LG Optimus 7 will pack several nifty applications and features that won’t be seen on other WP7 devices at launch. The first one is the ScanSearch Augmented reality application that I talked about a couple weeks ago. As you can see in the video below it works as advertised and features two little tricks that I was pleasantly surprised to see. When you point the device to the sky the AR app will show you the local weather and when you point it to the ground it will display a local map (powered by Google Maps…). The other distinctive feature is Voice-To-Text which is enabled for sms, MMS, FaceBook and Twitter. Finally there’s the DLNA multimedia sharing integration and Panorama app. The 3.8″ screen looks really nice (I’m guessing that it is an IPS panel) and the build quality is better than what you expect after looking at the pictures. It should also be noted that the Optimus 7 is the only WP7 device shipping with 16Gb of internal memory in Europe(the HTC HD7, HTC 7 Surround and HTC 7 Pro willfeature 16Gb of memeory in the US). video after the break:
