Hands-on with the LG Optimus 7

The rumors are true, folks. There's actually a Windows Phone here at the IFA conference in Berlin, Germany. It's the LG Optimus 7, aka the GW910 aka the Panther. It's not a full production unit just yet, and it was on hand really to show off DLNA media sharing -- which lets you wirelessly pipe video, photos and the like from your phone to your TV. Photos and video after the break.

  • Dieter, are you able to use the soft keyboard in landscape?
  • The soft keyboard opens in landscape when the screen is in landscape mode.
  • What the LG Optimus 7 is NOT the LG Panther. The E900 is the LG Optimus 7. This is obviously LG trying to show off a common feature on all of their wp7 devices without actually showing off the Optimus 7.
  • That's definitely preproduction. The hardware keyboard has arrow keys, which are not supposed to be allowed on WP7 devices, last I read. Of course, that could have changed ;)
  • I thought that the optimus7 was a slab w/o a slider kb.
  • Whatever the device is etc, the feature they're showing off is cool.
  • Very cool indeed. Particularly useful when you want to go big screen with some photos/videos that you captured that same day.
  • I can't wait for the release of the production devices!
  • Wow the phones are looking so lovely, and i think features will also really good in this lg phones.
  • I hope the DNLA implementation is better than Samsung's on the Omnia II. That was prone to streaming issues and just not working at all.
