LG launches Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q Windows phones

Tis Windows Phone 7 day, with LG, Samsung and HTC all announcing their new Windows devices.


LG's Optimus 7 is a serious multimedia phone with a 3.8-inch WVGA touch-screen and 16GB of internal memory - the beefiest on any LG phone yet. That's hundreds of hours of music and movie playback (theoretically), though the extra-large 1500mAh battery should pump up the battery life a fair bit. The five-megapixel camera comes with Intelligent Shot which automatically adjusts settings based on surroundings, and is capable of recording 720p video at 16:9 - the ratio for full HD movies.


DLNA support that lets you share content wirelessly between all DLNA-enabled devices such as an HDTV or PS3. There's also the preloaded Play To app which lets you play content from your phone sans-wires on a TV or speakers, while ScanSearch is an augmented reality app that will provide info about restaurants, transport, shopping and more in your current surroundings.


Finally, LG has also loaded its devices with Voice to Text, allowing you to dictate Facebook and Twitter updates, emails and memos. Like other Windows Phone 7 devices, the Optimus 7 syncs with Xbox Live and Zune.


The Optimus 7Q is the same phone, but with a slideout QWERTY and smaller touch-screen at 3.5 inches.


Both are available from October 21.
