is windows 7 mobile gonna be as easy and useful as windows 7 desktop?

i find windows 6.5 and 6.1 on an orange handset very tricky and confusing. A newbie smartphone user will never like windows 6.1 specially.

The phone is sort of similar to moto's droid with the backflips keyboard

Don't really like the real-keyboard type. Prefer the one at MWC Conference.

The current TV sets in US today are 120Hz(60pps) and 240Hz(120fps). In Europe 20 years ago was 100Hz(50fps due to PAL and SECAM). So, 60fps is more than welcome! Of course Japan is always way ahead (shame on Europe and US).

I think I am gonna love this phone. I actually prefer thicker phone with big wide screen. Well done LG.

It may have 1gb of RAM, but how much of that will be user available after boot up.It seems that alot of companies advertise handsets as having 'x' amount of RAM, but it's quite common that a lot of that is taken up by programs needed to make the phone run. By the looks of the keyboard, it's only a four row keyboard.
Although it's a good looking handset and not overly huge in the hand.

andy burgin, 28 Feb 2010Microsoft have made a big mistake picking Lg as the First Window... moreI agree, the build quality is reporteddly all bad in all their models. The LG expo looks like it has the same build quality as this phone, so if that phone is solidly built (it looks fairly sturdy), then this one is probably better.
Let's hope LG's bad reputation won't get worse with this phone, the first WP7 device being a flop would not be a good start. It looks very nice though.
