Though we're expecting to see this and all the other Windows Phone 7 devices in person, looks like all the OEMs are gearing up their press info, with LG posting then pulling the info on their Optimus 7 series phone (this is the previously known as the "C900").
The device features a 3.8" screen, 5MP camera, 1500 mah battery and thankfully 16GB of on board storage--all confirmed from earlier reports.
More interestingly, LG has added their own goodies to the mix as the Optimus 7 features "DLNA-based Play To, augmented reality and Voice-to-Text". The DLNA Play To (seen here in action) basically allows to wireless connect to LG TVs to stream media content. The Voice-to-text feature is no slouch either, allowing users to update Facebook and Twitter by just speaking.
Unfortunately, no word on whether this will be available in the U.S. but all signs so far suggest this is a European release, at least initially.

Damn, why does the EU only get 8GB?
