LG Panther Arrives at Microsoft Innovation Center in Singapore

We’ve been reading rumors about the LG Panther for a while now. For those that haven’t been keeping up on the chatter, the Panther is LG’s Windows Phone 7 device and it’s picture has been floating around the internet since just before Microsoft’s MIX event back in March. Details have always been hard to come by, or at least hard to get an official response on.  Yesterday, Microsoft’s Innovation Center in Singapore posted about the device on their blog – Innovative Singapore.

The device was sent to them so they can start testing applications on real hardware instead of just the emulator. Don’t get too excited, the OS is still getting new builds almost every other day. So there’s still a whole lot of work left to do!

In terms of the hardware, they report that the phone is fast – incredibly fast and responsive. Good news for everyone that’s been worried about performance on the new platform.

If you’re developing applications for Windows Phone 7 and you’re in the Singapore area, Microsoft Innovation Center is willing to loan out the device. If you’re not in the area, you might want to talk with your local Microsoft Mobile rep and see if they can get you connected – even if it’s a loaner for testing. That’s better than playing around with an emulator!

Windows Phone 7 can’t come soon enough. :)
