The LG GW910 in all probability will be the first WP7 based phone from LG’s stable. LG still has not spoken anything about the phone, except for its name (or was it leaked as well?). Well, the guys at WMExperts managed to get hold of the specifications of the LG GW910. The specifications of the LG GW910 are :
* 3.5-inch AMLOED Capacitive touch screen with WVGA resolution
* 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
* QWERTY Keyboard
* 5 MP camera with 720p video recording
The phone is also equipped with standardfeatures like Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm jack. Sadly, no information about the ROM and RAM of the phone are available. The specifications of the phone is nothing but standard. Snapdragon processor is quite a common sight in the higher-end phone market nowadays. The phone is expected to launch sometime in Q4, 2010.
It will be interesting to see the WP7 based phones, which will be launched by HTC. HTC has always set a benchmark in this race of which-phone-has-WOW-specs.
We have seen many leaked pictures of devices running Windows Phone 7, but none had a brand name written on it. Finally, a leaked picture of a LG phone appears with Windows Phone 7 running on it. The picture was posted on Flickr by a French Microsoft employee. The model name is LG Panther.
The pictures shows the three hardware button, which seems like back, Start and search from left to right, respectively. In terms of hardware, the phone is expected to have a WVGA or more resolution capacitive screen. The camera is expected to be 5MP or more with HD video recording capabilities. It will also have a sliding QWERTY keyboard. The processor is expected to have a clock speed of 1GHZ or more.
The specification is not official, it is only assumptions. However, the homescreen looks extremely good. I don’t think it will take much long to get an official confirmation of this phone.

The phone is obviously aimed at budget conscious users wishing to get a taste of Android. The GW620 will be competing directly with the likes of HTC Tattoo and Samsung Galaxy Spica. Although the ancient version of Android used in GW620 is a cause for disappointment, one can’t really complain since very few Android phones are available at its price point. Let us hope that LG will issue an update at some point of time in the future.
