A direct result of LG and Microsoft?s close work together in the smartphone market, the LG Optimus 7 series offers the glance and go experience of Windows Phone 7 combined with unique features only available on the LG devices. These compelling applications -- the DLNA-based Play To, augmented reality (AR) and Voice-to-Text -- are available as Live Tiles on Windows Phone 7 and can be accessed via integrated ?Hubs?.
With Play To, the DLNA-based multimedia sharing technology available only on LG Optimus 7 devices, users will have the most user-friendly file-sharing experience. Play To lets users share multimedia files with other digital devices from the picture, video or music Hubs without having to access other menus. Users will be able to display videos and photos captured on their LG Optimus 7 or LG Optimus 7Q on a TV or enjoy music on their phones through their favorite speakers without wires.
ScanSearch, an AR application that connects users with a world of information, is another unique feature available only on LG Windows Phone 7 devices. Users can access real-time information about shopping, dining, weather, entertainment and banking, bringing together one?s online and offline worlds for a more enjoyable life.
Users can also speak up and be heard thanks to LG?s Voice-to-Text feature which allows communication without the need for finger input. LG Optimus series owners will have the freedom to transcribe their voice into text for updating Facebook and Twitter or composing emails and memos for the experience of convenient, hands-free communication.
The LG Optimus 7 series helps users enjoy a new era of entertainment through the intro-duction of Microsoft?s popular Xbox LIVE and Zune services. Consumers will have direct access to their favorite games and music, bringing all entertainment devices together for more convenient enjoyment.
Creating Powerful Digital Content
LG Optimus 7 and LG Optimus 7Q immerse users in the entertainment experience with the ability to create powerful digital content. The 720p HD video resolution offers re-cording and playback of stunning visual quality and is ideal for sharing online through social media and offline on a TV through Play To. The LG Optimus 7 series also offers 16:9 aspect capture and playback for shooting and viewing movies in cinematic style.
The advanced 5MP camera offers a host of technological enhancements from LG such as Intelligent Shot, which lets users take the perfect photo without having to adjust camera settings, and Panoramic Mode for stitching together a full 360-degree landscape scene.
Offering New Forms of Interaction
Windows Phone 7 introduces a new approach to the Start screen experience through Live Tiles that offer easier access to information and services from the Web and applications that are important to users. The six Hubs of the OS -- People, Pictures, Games, Music + Video, Marketplace and Office -- organize information on the phones in a whole new way, bringing together all related applications, services and content.
LG Optimus 7Q was designed with an ergonomic QWERTY keypad. LG Optimus 7Q is the perfect companion for those who want to get full value from the Windows Phone 7 Office experi-ence with Microsoft Word(R) Mobile, Microsoft PowerPoint Mobile, OneNote Mobile and Excel Mobile functions built-in.
