LG to make a WP7 e-reader?

So speculates Re-think wireless, drawing on LG’s strong partnership with Microsoft, LG’s stated intent to develop an e-reader and tablet to challenge the iPad and Kindle, and Microsoft’s recent patent deal with Amazon.

They mention LG intends to leverage their extensive R&D in electronic paper and other screen technologies, and that LG has been rumoured to be developing devices either running some version of Windows or Android.

Re-Think Wireless notes that Microsoft’s patent deal with Amazon specifically mentions the Kindle and that Microsoft does have an (under-developed) e-book heritage.

LG’s device is expected as early as April this year.
