Vodafone has secured exclusive rights to the LG Optimus 7 and will be offering the handset for free on monthly contract deals from £30 per month.
The carrier will begin selling the smartphone from October 21st, with the £30 tariff over 24 months entitling takers to 600 minutes per month as well as unlimited texts and data.
LG’s handset was by common consent one of the more impressive devices showcased at yesterday’s Windows Phone 7 launch.
As well as the 1GHz processor that’s common to all the first generation handsets using Microsoft’s platform, the Optimus 7 packs in a pretty expansive 3.8-inch WVGA display and a five megapixel camera with 720p recording.
Also onboard is a 16GB of storage, a digital compass, Wi-Fi and of course the new user friendly, social networking-focussed Microsoft interface.
But what LG hopes will set its smartie apart from the competition are some smart services. The Play To DNLA multi-media sharing platform looks a winner, as does the Scansearch augmented reality-style search assistant and voice to text input function.
Vodafone will also be selling the HTC Trophy 7. The more modestly featured smartie is available for free from £25 per month.
