Since the release of the Apple iPhone three years ago, Microsoft is probably the worst to suffer from the competition. The Windows 7 Phone Series is an attempted comeback on the part of Microsoft to compete against the current market. They are throwing away everything that has gone before and coming up with completely new ideas and a fresh new interface. This is designed around ‘hubs’; a home-like screen that brings together apps and documents following a certain theme. Some of the great features this phone will have to go with the great OS are the five megapixel camera and flash, 256MB RAM with 8GB flash for storage, light sensor, proximity sensor and DirectX9 accelerated GPU. Microsoft has set out to launch the phone in November.
HTC have announced their model called the HTC 7 Pro, which has a slide out QWERTY keyboard, 3.6" display screen, a five megapixel camera with HD capabilities, 3.5G support, Wi-Fi and GPS. It has a 1GHz processor and 448MB of RAM combined with 8GB internal flash memory.
The model has been said by the Sprint network to be available early 2011 in the US but unfortunately no news for the rest of us! However, on a brighter note the new LG Optimus 7 and 7Q windows 7 phones are said to be available in 35 countries worldwide and has just been released! The LG Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q phone, like most Windows phones has three buttons on the front, back button, windows button and search button. The difference in these two phones is simply the screen size and a QWERTY keyboard.
The Optimus 7 is a tablet style smartphone with a 3.8" display and the Optimus 7Q has a 3.5" inch display, but comes with a slide out QWERTY keyboard. Both of the models have a five megapixel camera with flash, 512MB of RAM, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 16GB internal flash memory and a large 1500 mAh battery.
