The announcement of Windows Mobile 7 is imminent. Many people are expecting Microsoft to announce and even demo it at Mobile Congress next month.
So far, nobody knows much about what Windows Mobile 7 will look like as Microsoft has kept their lips sealed.
LG has announced that it will release a phone for both Windows Mobile 7 as well as Android. The LG Apollo is set to release in August/September.
The specs for the LG Windows Mobile 7 phone are CRAZY! This might actually be a real super phone. Check the specs:
