I was late for the Keynote and when going around the Registration area I noticed Microsoft employee stacking LG marked boxes. A free Windows 7 phone for us? I certainly hope so…keep my fingers crossed. I’ll keep you updated once the Keynote is ending.
Update: Confirmed, we’ll get a LG Optimus 7 Windows 7 Smartphone starting 12:30pm.
LG Optimus 7 Windows 7 Phone is built around a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and features a 3.8″ WVGA display, 16GB storage, 5MP camera capable of recording 720p HD video, WiFi and GPS, and, interestingly enough, native DLNA client, a first in the industry. But a client DLNA is not all, LG Optimus 7 can also act as a DLNA server sharing its content to other DLNA enabled devices around your home.
Update 2: Apparently a select group will get a Samsung (probably Omnia 7) device. We’ll see at 12:30 who and why!
Update 3: I just got my device, if you signed fo the Windows Phone 7 Workshop on Saturday, you get a Samsung!
