With its 1GHz single-core processor and its super bright “NOVA” display, the LG Optimus Black Android phone was introduced by the Korean manufacturer at this year’s CES back in January. They key words here are “Android phone”, but the picture above shows something different.
What we’ve got in the image above is anyone’s guess. At a first glance we’ve got the LG Optimus Black running Windows Phone. If we were to speculate on that, we could come up with four possible explanations: 1. fake (either as in Photoshop or displaying screenshots); 2. port (as in Windows Phone being ported to an unsupported CPU — TI OMAP); 3. custom skin for Android (and we know there are plenty of those); 4. an LG prototype based on the Optimus Black chassis.
We’d rule out LG using the Optimus Black as a chassis to test Windows Phone on as they already have the Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q for that. We’d also rule out the port because Windows Phone does currently not support Texas Instruments processors. The “fake” and the “skin” versions seem credible enough since the overall font used is a tad too large in the Application list for Windows Phone and the tiles on the Start screen have unconventional icons.
