LG Electronics at this year's IFA trade show in Berlin showed off the LG Optimus 7 and its new media sharing feature.
The LG Optimus 7 is a Windows Phone that shares media with DLNA compliant digital devices at the touch of a finger. The photo of the LG Optimus 7 revealed that it will have a landscape QWERTY keyboard slider with touchscreen and back/search buttons.
LG's unique multimedia sharing technology on the LG Optimus 7 allows users to enjoy content on the phone and on other digital platforms with a simple finger flick. This preinstalled feature allows users to send files directly from the phone's media galleries, without having to leave for another application.
The phone will automatically display compatible devices in the same Wi-Fi zone and let users literally flick media files to the targeted device. Users can transfer multimedia saved on their phones -- 720p HD videos, high-resolution photos and high-quality music files -- wirelessly to their TV or home theater system.
"This unique feature is a direct response to the growing need for technologies that empower users to share multimedia content across electronic devices," said Mr. Seong-Jin Park, vice president of Mobile Handset R&D Center at LG Electronics, Inc. "LG Optimus 7 smartphones will be at the center of a complete entertainment experience, representing LG's leadership in mobile convergence."
This media file-sharing technology will be embedded in upcoming LG Optimus 7 smartphones, which go on sale early in the fourth quarter of this year. It has been previously referred to as the LG GW910 (Panther).
