Microsoft unveiled Windows Phone 7 Series just a couple of weeks back at the Mobile World Congress 2010 event in Barcelona which did manage to impress many (including me)! And now, Microsoft’s Aaron Woodman has unveiled LG’s Windows Phone 7 Series pre-production prototype which comes with a QWERTY slider at the Engadget show.
The QWERTY slider is the first branded Windows Phone 7 Series device the world’s ever seen and it’s just a hair thicker than an iPhone or Nexus One. It carries a dedicated hardware camera, volume, and power buttons in addition to the back, home, and search buttons dictated by Windows Phone 7 Series. It is powered by a five megapixel camera with a flash on the back, along with a headphone jack.
Steve Ballmer had told that the first phone would be out before the holiday season of 2010 and it seems they are very much on track with LG being the first one to get the taste of Windows 7 phone series. Check out some more screenshots of the LG prototype and also a video after the break
