What could be the world's first smartphone to sport the next mobile operating system from Microsoft has been officially unveiled by a representative from the firm.
The as-yet-unnamed mobile is manufactured by LG and is currently in the prototype stage of development. With a full QWERTY keypad it is a little bulkier than the current generation iPhone and although it has a touchscreen interface, there are still three physical keys on the front.
The LG smartphone will have a five megapixel camera and a 3.5mm headphone jack, as is to be expected these days.
Aaron Woodman turned the spotlight on the LG Windows Phone 7 Series mobile when he took it to a recording of Engadget's show on behalf of Microsoft.
Mr Woodman was fairly cautious in describing what his firm's new operating system would offer, sticking to a discussion of the LG smartphone's hardware.
However, he did hint that Microsoft was considering some kind of Mac compatibility, which could be interesting.
