Word on the street is that LG will be the first to launch a device running the new Windows Phone 7 Series (WP7) operating system. According to Engadget, their Chinese subsidiary had a "sitdown" with LG, who said that their WP7 phone would be launching "sometime between September and November." Though the dates are clearly not set in stone, LG's statement lines up with Microsoft's promise to release their first WP7 phone in time for the holidays.
Remember that according to the two Microsoft Australia Developer Evangelists who, earlier this week, shed some light on the three chassis Microsoft will be allowing for WP7 phones, Chassis 1 should be the first form factor to launch. Based on this information, we can logically presume that the specs for LG's first WP7 phone should be something as follows:
None of this is set in stone, obviously, and we're still too far away to tell what will change and what won't, but I'm sure more news on this issue will develop over time.
Now, who's getting excited?!
