Hands-on with LG's Quantum

updated 06:20 pm EDT, Mon October 11, 2010

Windows Phone 7 with small form factor

After taking a look at several Windows Phone 7 handsets unveiled today in New York City, Electronista had a chance to handle LG's Quantum. From the front, the device appears to be a slight adaptation of the Optimus T. Unlike its Android-based counterpart, however, the Quantum features an 800x480 display and QWERTY slider.

The Quantum sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen, smaller than the 4.3-inch component of the HD7 but large enough to present the WP7 UI without appearing cramped. Most of the WP7 devices currently run on 1GHz processors, including the Quantum. When navigating through the UI or checking out apps, we never noticed any lag or delay.

Overall, we think the Quantum will be one of the better choices in the mid-range category of Windows Phone 7 devices. The hardware is more than sufficient to run the OS and applications, while the housing and keyboard seem to be well designed. We did prefer the larger screen and squared lines of LG's Optimus 7Q, which is headed to international markets instead of the US.

AT&T will carry the Quantum for $200 when tied to a two-year contract. The device is expected to ship on October 21.
