LG Slips Early With Optimus 7 Windows Phone 7 Handset

Admittedly it's not like we didn't know LG was going to announce the Optimus 7, consideringthey've already shown it off several times themselves. However, their blog went live with the details today, showing off the panorama photo-shooting phone.

The screen is a 3.8-inch WVGA display, with the overall phone measuring 125 x 59.8 x 11.5mm. Inside, there's 16GB of storage, along with the usual Bluetooth 2.1, accelerometer, proximity sensor, GPS, digital compass and light sensor.

Clamped onto the back is a 5MP camera which can shoot video at 720p resolution, but also snap 360-degree panorama photos. That'll be a nice trick to furnish your Flickr accounts with.

While it's running Windows Phone 7, LG (like many other manufacturers, we're sure) has added some of their own apps to the tiled interface. We already knew of the DLNA streaming, but there's also voice-to-text for Facebook, Twitter and email; not to mention Scansearch which is their own take on the whole "take a picture of a barcode, see if you can find it cheaper elsewhere" shebang which we've used several times on other devices, only to grow bored and revert back to Amazon.

I'm always tempted to upgrade to one of these bad boys, but I know I'll never use 90% of the crap on there. But damn is it tempting.

It's probably always going to be too expensive for me to feel like it's worth buying.

Everyone is trying to one-up everyone on the phone capabilities these days. :P

The panorama pictures option is pretty sweet, I have to admit. The brief video demos of it that I've seen don't make it seem any different than any other Android. The only thing companies can do these days is add a new gadget feature to their phones. Hell, they already have a face identifier apps out that allow you to take a picture of someone and the app finds out whether they have a facebook/myspace account.
