LG confirms Windows Phone 7 handset

South Korean electronics giant Lucky Goldstar has ousted their first Windows Phone 7 handset, The LG Optimus 7.

LG aired the Optimus 7 mobile phone in a demonstration of DLNA, at Berlin's IFA consumer electronics show. Digital Living Network Alliance (DNLA) is a way of easily sharing media from device to device, over WIFI and Ethernet.

The Windows Phone 7 handset from LG has a one-touch method of sharing video files, music and images with their own and other television sets with DLNA built in.

LG demoed this in action at the event, whilst at the same time showing off the Optimus 7. The sharing of media with a simple flick of a finger, between phone and screen, is a unique proposition from LG - according to the company.

Media sharing can be done over WIFI without leaving the media gallery, with files such as 720p HD video and high resolution images being presented straight to an LG TV screen.

No details were furnished surrounding the exact specifications of the LG Optimus 7, although it's been reported the handset will have a 3.7-inch touch screen, with a 1Ghz processor and a 5 megapixel camera - besides running Windows 7.

One Mobile Ring has been invited to a virtual press conference with Lucky Goldstar on September 14th, which relates to the Optimus series of handsets. We're expecting they'll be an official announcement over their Windows Phone 7 line-up at that time.
