Korean giant LG is reportedly working on a Windows Phone 7 device, which is set to arrive later this year.
The new LG device carries model number LG —E906 and will succeed the current LG-E900 Optimus 7.
We can expect a slew of new devices when Microsoft unveils the Windows Phone 7 Mango update.
Currently the Windows Phone 7 based LG Optimus 7 awaits the Mango update along with LG Quantum. Meanwhile, LG’s engineers are testing the next iteration of Optimus 7 that will carry similar model number LG-E906.
The LG-E906 device’s XML (Extended Mark-up Language) file located on LG’s website carries some information regarding this. For instance, the LG-906 will have 480 x 800 pixel screen resolution and will sport Microsoft IE9. This clearly hints that the device will run Windows Phone 7 Mango. The device has also received WiFi Alliance certification.
Apart from LG, Samsung too is working on a Windows Phone 7 Mango based device and even HTC is said to have a device called Eternity, which will be launched after Mango’s arrival.
Microsoft will soon release Windows Phone 7 in India and our hopes are set on the devices that will run the new Mango.
