LG just launched their Optimus 7, the world’s first smartphone to use the new Windows Phone 7 OS.
The hottest news this week in the mobile gaming world is the launch of the first ever smartphone powered by the new Windows Phone 7 operating system. It’s the LG Optimus 7, and first peeks are showing that this mobile device is as good as everyone hoped it would be.
Windows Phone 7 is the newest mobile operating system from Microsoft. It features a brand new interface based around a start screen, where “tiles” link to applications, functions, and internal items.
Here are the specs of the new LG Optimus 7:
- 3.8″ 800 x 480 WVGA touchscreen
- 5MP autofocus sharpshooter camera
- 720p HD video recording
- 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
- Light and proximity sensor, digital compass
- 16GB of on-board storage
These figures boil down to one thing: the LG Optimus 7 is a mobile gaming powerhouse. It connects to the Xbox LIVE marketplace, giving users a chance to purchase and download a huge variety of games. These can be played against other WP7 users, or even against players connecting through their PCs.
Of course, the new LG Optimus 7 can also run other games designed for smartphones, including Windows mobile casino games. Mobile gambling has been picking up speed in recent years, and dedicated games are being produced for all major mobile platforms, from Android Casinos to iPad Casinos. Windows Phone 7 gambling is likely to become quite popular as more and more devices are released in coming months.
