Fresh from the million-selling success of their LG Optimus One (P500) Android phone, LG Electronics hopes to do the same with the launch of their first-ever Quantum Windows Phone 7 product at AT&T. The Quantum is already available for purchase starting November 19.
LG has given AT&T exclusive rights to market the Quantum and customers may have this Windows Phone 7 handset for $199.99 under a two-year contract. The price is comparable with other high-end Android products. If you are interested to try out Windows Phone 7, this phone is a good option.
Part of the ten Windows Phone 7 handsets announced last month by Microsoft including LG Optimus 7 and Dell Venue Pro, the LG Quantum has a small footprint, it measures 4.7 x 2.34 x 0.60 inches and weighs 6.21 ounces. It has a rather small 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen display but it offers a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Like all other Windows Phone 7 models, the LG Quantum only has 16GB internal storage capacity and no expansion slot. It has a 1 GHz CPU and a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash. LG is giving away 10 free apps for this mobile phone from the LG App Store at Windows Phone MarketPlace.
Lastly, the LG Quantum release date mentioned above is for US residents only. For UK, Canada and International markets, LG Quantum will be released at a later schedule.
