    Even if you are not a Windows Phone 7 user, you most probably learned by now that Microsoft has started pushing out a first Windows Phone 7 update, a prerequisite if you will for the upcoming NoDo to be out in March. On the same note, you probably also heard that there were some issues involved and Microsoft has made its stance public on the first ever Windows Phone 7 patch roll-out process. According to Microsoft, 90% of the people who actually got the update notification and started the process have managed to finalize it with success. 90% is a good number if you refer to nine people out ...

    If you follow the news, you most probably know by now that LG is offering free applications exclusively to LG Windows Phone 7 owners via the LG apps store inside the Marketplace. New titles were added in December and then again in January and now LG is offering four additional app titles. If last time the apps were third parties, with value of $29.2, and LG offered them all for free, this time there are four applications made by the manufacturer itself. 1. Today is an application that is based on the Panoramic screens on Windows Phone 7 to offer information about weather, news, twitter and ...

    Sony has turned to the U.S. International Trade Commission with a filing against LG claiming the South Korean manufacturer has violated several U.S. trade rules by importing and selling on the market phones that infringe Sony patents and some of its licensees, including its Sony Ericsson joint venture, Samsung and Nokia. According to Sony's claim -- also filed with the Los Angeles Federal Court -- more than ten LG made phones, among which the Windows Phone 7 powered LG Quantum smartphone, infringe patents related to audio and microphone devices in phones, caller ID technology and ...

    We already know that one of the unique benefits of LG Windows Phone 7 devices is that the Korean manufacturer is offering 10 free apps exclusively for LG Windows Phone 7 owners. There is a dedicated section inside Marketplace called LG apps store which you can access using your LG Windows Phone 7 and that app store just got updated with new titles. The LG free software program is called hAPPiness and it now officially features Voice to Text - which we reviewed earlier plus an additional two new applications that entered the store by rotation: Fortune Coins (augmented reality game for ...

    You most probably remember -- in case you didn't take advantage of -- AT&T's Windows Phone 7 BOGO deal where you buy one of the devices in its line-up (LG Quantum, HTC Surround or Samsung Focus) and get another Windows Phone 7 for free. In case you bought a Windows Phone 7 handset from AT&T in the past 30 days, you are lucky as you might still be eligible for the BOGO deal. Microsoft tweeted the info from its Windows Phone account announcing the good (for some) news; to find out whether you qualify or not, contact AT&T and make sure you have your receipt handy for your recent -- not older ...

    LG may not be selling the most handsets on the block, but its advertising firm deserves an 'A' for effort, as the company's mobile division keeps pushing out one entertaining commercial after the next. Following that trio of long-form, mixed-media spots, LG is now screening a Windows Phone 7-powered Quantum ad that focuses on the QWERTY-equipped device's DLNA capabilities. (With so few features differentiating this initial crop of WP7 handsets, it's not surprising to see the same themes appearing again and again in marketing efforts.) Oh yeah, and the commercial stars a Swamp ...

    Missed Amazon's sale of the HTC Surround and LG Quantum for one cent apiece and still interested in picking up one of the new Windows Phone 7 handsets on AT&T? If you're shopping for a family you may still be in luck, as now AT&T is promoting its WP7 lineup with buy-one-get-one-free deals for those two models alongside Samsung's Focus. You'll have to wait until Black Friday for the sale to rev up, but there's no telling yet just how long the promotion will run. If AT&T wants to bump its WP7 holiday sales figures, keeping this going for at least a couple weeks seems like the right move. The ...

    Of the three Windows Phone 7 devices that were released to AT&T, the LG Quantum had the most hazy launch date. But that day has come, says an official press release from LG. The 1GHz device is the only Windows Phone 7 you can get with a side-sliding keyboard (though the Venue Pro comes close with the bottom-sliding keyboard). It comes with 16GB of onboard memory, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, and DLNA support. The press release also mentions that LG WP7 device owners will get access to exclusive premium software. The Quantum will run you $199.99 ...

    Australian developer Chris Walsh recently found a method to run so-called native code on the platform indicating that jailbreaking Windows Phone 7 could be possible, though it's a first step in a huge process. Same developer seems to have conquered another OS tower as he now tweeted that he's got registry and file system access. The tweet also mentions that this was achieved on Samsung and HTC devices and the developer is committed to getting that on LG handsets too. Are these hacks device dependent? Normally they shouldn't be but, as with the case of USB tethering on the Samsung Focus and ...

    A short-lived sale at Amazon may be just the nudge you need if you've been on the fence about deciding to pick up one of the new Windows Phone 7 handsets. If you act this weekend, you'll be able to score an on-contract HTC Surround or LG Quantum for one cent. There are a whole slew of phones running on AT&T's network that Amazon has put up for sale (no luck getting an iPhone for a penny, though), but these two WP7 models stand out due to being brand-spanking new. The Surround and Quantum may not be the most talked-about WP7 handsets, but the Quantum is a good choice if you're not totally ...

    Today is the day many of us have been waiting for, the date for Windows Phone 7 device launch and since it's already November 8, AT&T just launched its Windows Phone 7 website featuring the HTC Surround, Samsung Focus and LG Quantum. Those of you who don't want to actually go to the store can purchase the Surround and Focus straight from the carrier. Both handsets run for $199.99 on a two year contract and require a $15/month data plan (with both priced at $499.99 with no commitment purchase). While the LG Quantum is still on preorder, the Surround and Focus are available as of now and if ...

    At this point it should really come as no surprise -- considering that sales begin in less than a week -- but it's worth mentioning that neither AT&T nor T-Mobile will be taking pre-orders for their inventory of Windows Phone 7 launch devices. We could previously surmise from T-Mobile's HTC HD7 landing page that there would be no pre-order period -- a helpful notification feature is offered in case you forget when the 8th falls this month -- and now AT&T has responded to a tweet by stating that handset availability would be on a "first come, first serve basis" starting on the day of ...

    If you're trying to decide between the selection of Windows Phone 7 launch devices, LG wants to help make your choice easier by offering 10 free apps to you. The catch is that you can only download apps that LG makes available through the LG Application sub-store found on LG Windows Phone 7 devices. Ten free applications, across a variety of categories including social networking, utilities, and gaming, worth over $30, will be given away every 60 days, and will be available for a period of 60 days. The apps will be available through the LG Application Store, which will launch on LG Windows ...

    LG Electronics posted record operating losses in the third quarter of this year, led by poor smartphone sales from the struggling mobile division. Unlike American rival Motorola, which is showing signs of a resurgence after several years in the desert, the Korean manufacturer saw net profits fall 99 percent from the previous quarter, with the mobile business alone accounting for a reported 304 billion won operating loss (about $270.7 million). The division's performance is so poor that it is dragging down better numbers produced by less troubled parts of the firm. Just last month LG took ...
