LG is heavily supporting the Windows Phone 7 mobile platform with the launch of the Optimus 7 just a while back. Now it seems that a second LG made WP7 handset is also coming out: the Optimus 7Q. The Q stands for Quantum and despite the fact that it looks a lot like the Optimus 7; this is an entirely new device.

Specs wise, the Quantum still follows Microsoft’s hardware requirements though the screen is a lot smaller at 3.5 inches (still carries the required resolution at least). The best part about the new handset is the slide out QWERY keyboard.

For those looking forward to the Windows Phone 7 handset, the Dell Venue Pro, this might be a good time to belay that purchase and consider your alternatives. According to a recent report, the smart phonies having some serious hardware issues; aside from the battery problems and the issues it has been having with WiFi connectivity, the Venue Pro is now having some SIM card problems as well.

Moving on to the Android OS, Motorola’s next generation smart phone is going to be the Olympus. So far, initial reports peg this device to be the best contender for the next gen device as it packs the Tegra 2 CPU. The handset can easily be mistaken for a larger version of the previously released Motorola Defy (which has certainly made a lasting impression with its super tough casing).

A new smart phone from Acer seems pretty close in concept to the Dell Streak. The device has yet to be given an official name, but so far we are certainly interested in what it can do. The biggest draw of this handset is the 4.8 inch touch screen display –which is the closest that comes to the Streak’s 5 inch capacitive touch screen.
