LG windows phone 7 series.jpgWindows Phone 7 Series was Microsoft’s shockingly cool looking trump card at Mobile World Congress 2010. They’ve showed off the software, and now it looks like Microsoft are ready to start flashing the hardware too, as an LG-manufactured Windows Phone 7 Series prototype handset was caught out in the open in New York.

Just a touch thicker than an iPhone or Nexus One, despite housing a full QWERTY slider, the touchscreen phone has a 5 megapixel camera and headphone jack, as well as dedicated hardware buttons for search, back, home, volume, power and the camera itself.

Those details aside, there is little known about the handset, or even if it will eventually become commercially available. With September looking the earliest possible date for any Windows Phone 7 Series phones to hit shelves, we might still have a fair bit of waiting until we see any officially confirmed designs.
