LG E900 Optimus 7 picture leaked by Microsoft
Apparently, the E900 will be sold as the LG Optimus 7, which may mean that LG will be extending the Optimus brand beyond Android-based solutions. Perhaps Optimus is shaping up to be LG’s smartphone brand, regardless of OS.
The picture may suggest that the phone is headed in Vodafone’s direction, since there’s a 360 tile on it. However, this may not necessarily be the case, as Microsoft Netherlands said in a follow-up tweet. That tile may just be there for testing purposes.
Vodafone or not, it’s clearly coming to Europe since Microsoft Netherlands bothered to tweet about it.
There’s also a Panorama shot tile, which suggests that there will be a dedicated Panorama mode for the camera.
Windows Phone 7 is supposed to be finalized in October, so perhaps November is when we’ll see widespread availability of this handset if LG want to be at the front of the WP7 pack.
