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 ...

Australian carrier Telstra has revealed via Twitter that it will be selling the HTC 7 Mozart and LG Optimus 7Q (LG Quantum here in the US) Windows Phone 7 handsets for AU$864 and AU$960, respectively, which translates to about $850 and $945 at current exchange rates. Now we're used to seeing HTC handsets go for a premium price unsubsidized -- the HD7 will supposedly cost upwards of $840 unlocked -- but almost $1,000 for an LG phone seems a bit much, especially since we've heard that even HTC's Surround will only cost $550 off-contract from AT&T. Both of these models feature 1GHz ...

Telus will not be the only provider bringing Windows Phone 7 devices to Canada, as both Rogers and Bell have signed up to stock the Samsung Focus and LG Quantum (pictured left to right), respectively. With Telus scheduled to offer the HTC 7 Surround and LG Optimus 7, Canadian consumers now look to have a decent four-device selection to choose from. AT&T will be selling the Focus, Quantum, and Surround in the US, although the Optimus 7 will not be available from any domestic carriers at launch. With the US in general receiving the lion's share of handsets at launch, we wonder if European ...

Lots of devices went official today with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 launch but the LG Optimus 7 was announced on LG UK's Blog even before the Redmond company's event.

AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets CEO Ralph De La Vega has just introduced a U-Verse streaming service for Windows Phone 7 devices. Apparently home U-Verse subscribers will have free access to content on demand on their handsets, while non-subscribers can pay a monthly fee for access to the streams. For now this service will be restricted to Windows Phone 7 handsets.
