Well this is certainly more exciting!

While details and specifications are still not confirmed, ElectricPig got their hands on the sweet LG Panther prototype with Windows Phone 7 on board.

They note some dramatic improvements over the last version a few months ago, stating:

We’re much more excited seeing that unusual homescreen bursting with info this time round (in an amusing, if impractical touch, a smiley faces turns to a frown the more unread texts you have) and we have to say, it’s certainly much nippier now, with a working calendar that can detect addresses in text and proffer up speedy Bing maps, and frankly astounding looking Office support that puts Google Docs access on mobiles to shame.

The screen on the LG Windows Phone 7 model is also a vast improvement on the poor display on the original Windows Phone 7 prototype shown at Barcelona, and it really felt like a finished product on the outside at least, with a sturdy sliding mechanism and decent landscape keyboard.

That's what we like to hear. Head over to see all 18 shots of the LG in action.

Update: CNet UK also had a hands on and positive things to say too. They note a 5MP camera,  that the screen is a little small and focus on Office, with lots of great photos.
