Microsoft launched so much awaited Windows 7 Mobile OS at the Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona few weeks back. Everyone was waiting when they would reveal the phone running the latest Windows Phone 7 Operating system.

And at least, Microsoft has just revealed the first prototype of a device by LG running Windows Phone 7 mobile at the Engadget Show 2010. There was a surprise for everyone when Microsoft’s Aaron Woodman revealed the first prototype phone running Windows Phone 7 Series and introduced some of the specifications of the phone including QWERTY slider with a multi-touch display. Other then that, it includes the standard Windows Phone 7 prescribed buttons such as “Home”, “Back” and “Search”.

Engadget mention that the new Windows phone is slightly thicker than an Apple iPhone, which one would expect from a handset featuring a slide-out keyboard.

The phone also features a 5 megapixel handset. However, with September looking like the earliest possible date this handset might be available to the great unwashed, there is still plenty of time for Microsoft to up the specs and add in new features to the first Windows Phone Series 7 mobile.
