Pictures of LG’s Windows Phone 7 line up has leaked over the last 2 weeks, and Trading Markets have managed to get the company to comment on the handsets.

The two main handsets are the 3.8 inched screened LG Optimus 7, heading for Europe, and the 3.5 inch screened LG Pacific with a QWERTY keyboard, heading to AT&T.

LG confirmed  they expect the launch the LG Optimus 7 in October in Europe and the LG Pacific in November in USA.

An LG spokesman told Trading Markets:

"It is difficult to release specifics of the new phones now as we are in discussions with mobile communication firms and Microsoft over the launch, but LG Electronics is developing them with a goal to lead the market for Window Phone 7-based smartphones,".

LG has previously expressed a high level of confidence in the predicted performance of handsets running the new OS, saying Windows Phone 7 will soon outperform Apple’s iPhone and the Google phone to emerge as a new class of smartphone.
