LG GW750 launches with Windows Mobile 6.5

Yep, it's here - the first Windows phone from LG, and the first of many, after the recently announced partnership with Microsoft.

 

The GW750 is a tablet style smartphone running on the new(ish) Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. We had a brief whirl and its new icon-based look is definitely much more modern than the PDA vibe of WinMo 6.1, with useful touches like stock and weather widgets.

 

Of course it's still got the same list-based core, so it's a good thing the GW750 is skinned with LG's S-Class cube interface, with menus arranged in four homescreens, all fully customisable.

 

One thing you can't complain about Windows phones are their business features, and the GW750 will probably be LG's best business device, with push email on Microsoft Exchange email (and Hotmail), and free Windows Live Messenger.

 

Other specs of note include a three-inch touch-screen, A-GPS and a five-megapixel camera, and the GW750 will also have access to Vodafone internet services, most notably its new social networking service, 360.

 

The LG GM750 will be available initially in seven countries - Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the UK, and also in France through SFR, with further countries following soon after.
