LG’s first Windows Phone 7 device coming September, “a couple by the end of the year”

The LG PantherLG’s Panther was one of the first Windows Phone 7 devices shown off, so it is no surprise it will also be one of the first to hit the market.

According to company representatives, the phone is “ready to go”.

LG has told PCWorld they expect to release the handset as early as the end of September, meaning it could be a scant 60 days before the first Windows Phone 7 handset hits the market.

The LG Panther will not be LG’s only Windows Phone 7 handset this year however.

"We have a deep relationship with Microsoft so expect to have a couple by the end of this year," said Ken Hong, an LG representative in Seoul.

LG claims to have an iPhone-killer Windows Phone 7 device in the works, and there is evidence for at least 2 more LG devices, the LG C900 and LG E900 running Windows Phone 7.
