LG Electronics will be offering two Windows Phone 7 mobile phones in Australia, the LG Optimus 7 on Optus and the LG Optimus 7Q through Telstra. Both offer similar specifications inside, but the Optimus 7Q on Telstra comes equipped with a full hardware QWERTY keyboard which may prove better for business users who have used BlackBerry mobile phones previously.

The LG Optimus 7 will be available on Optus exclusively in Australia, with plans starting at $0 upfront on the $79 Optus Cap plan for consumer customers and $0 upfront on the $79 Business Complete Ultimate plan for business customers; both plans are available on a 24 month contract with a minimum spend of $1896.

“Available through Optus, the LG Optimus 7 is the result of a close collaboration with Microsoft to ensure users seamlessly play, share, store and stay in touch with the world.” said Nathan Dunn, General Manager, Mobile Communications, LG Australia.

Phil Offer, Marketing Director of Optus Small and Medium Business believes the LG Optimus 7 hits the spot between work and play, including seamless integration with Microsoft Outlook and other Office products.

“Optus is pleased to support the launch of Microsoft Windows Phone 7 by offering the LG Optimus 7 to our customers. As a leading provider of smartphones, our aim is to provide businesses and consumers with greater value and choice to match the right smartphone with their individual needs – the LG Optimus 7 is a welcome addition to enhance our smartphone range.” he said.

In Australia the LG Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q will have to contend with competition from HTC’s 7 Mozart and 7 Trophy mobile phones as well as Samsung OMNIA 7 which will also be available through Optus.
