If you fancy cutting yourself a steaming-hot slice of Windows Phone 7 pie but don't like touchscreen keyboards, the LG Optimus 7Q may be of interest, as it packs a physical keyboard.

The 7Q and Dell Venue Pro are the only Windows Phone 7 smart phones with Qwerty keyboards to have emerged so far. LG told us there are currently no plans to release the 7Q over here, but we'd be surprised if it didn't eventually make a UK appearance, considering that it was at one time touted as a Windows Phone 7 launch device. LG has understandably put plenty of focus on the Optimus 7, and may not want to deal all of its cards too soon by releasing the 7Q now.

The 7Q has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 5-megapixel camera, like the Optimus 7, but it fits in a sliding Qwerty keyboard and a smaller, 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen. Like its brother, the 7Q has 512MB of RAM, 16GB of memory, and 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. It also manages to squeeze in an impressive 1,500mAh battery.

Its Qwerty keyboard may make the 7Q a good alternative to a BlackBerry, and Windows Phone 7 will benefit from built-in Microsoft Office capability. The 7Q will also provide access to some custom apps and a few neat camera features, plus the standard Windows Phone 7 experience with its Zune and Xbox goodness.

If you don't mind going Google, you'll soon have the option of picking up the HTC Desire Z Android phone, with its Qwerty keyboard. At some time before Christmas, you'll also be able to buy the Samsung Galaxy 551 Qwerty phone, although it's not a high-end handset like the Galaxy S.

Does the 7Q tickle your fancy, or are you perfectly happy with virtual typing? Let us know in the comments section below, and click through our photo gallery to see more of the phone.

Update: Engadget – one of the world’s largest tech blogs – can usually be trusted, but according to NowGamer, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe claims the images of the PlayStation Phone are fake. What do you think?

Back in early August, a rumor started that Sony Ericsson had an Android powered PlayStation phone in the works. Some people questioned the authenticity of the handset, but now Engadget has posted a series of hard-to-argue-with pictures that show a prototype of the future SE gaming device.

The PlayStation Phone will supposedly be released sometime in the next few months – perhaps even in time for the holidays, but more likely in 2011. The device is said to run Gingerbread (Android 2.3?) and feature a Sony Marketplace, which will let users buy and download games that have been specifically designed for the platform.

The prototype device in the gallery is rocking a second-gen 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor with the same Adreno 205 GPU that can be found on the HTC Desire Z, Desire HD and myTouch. It sports 512MB of RAM, a 1GB ROM, custom slide-out gaming controls, and the screen is estimated to be somewhere between 3.7 – 4.1 inches. If you wonder what that oval area in the middle of the gaming keys is for, it’s apparently a long touchpad with multitouch capability, which should be able to provide some interesting gameplay options.

The PlayStation Phone along with its custom game market sounds a lot like N-Gage: Nokia’s mobile gaming debacle. Nokia eventually closed N-Gage and made all its games available in the OVI Store instead, but hopefully Sony Ericsson will be more successful at creating a phone and portable gaming console hybrid. After all, PlayStation is a very strong brand.

I personally wish SE would’ve used a more powerful, dual-core processor such as the Tegra 2 for the device. The Tegra 2 is more suitable for intense graphics, and the rumored PlayStation Phone basically has the same hardware as my HTC Desire, although with a faster, second-gen Snapdragon chip instead. But at least the specs of the PlayStation Phone blow the current PlayStation Portable out of the water.

Do you think this device will be a success, or will SE’s PlayStation Phone be for hardcore gamers only? Would you also have preferred more state-of-the-art hardware, or are you pleased with the specs?

Though it took some time coming out, Microsoft’s enthusiastic dive into the mobile OS segment may have been just what was needed to spice up the mobile OS wars. LG has joined the procession of manufacturers who’ve announced handsets running Windows Phone 7. The Optimus 7 and Optimus 7Q will be the company’s first smartphones running the said mobile OS.

The devices seem to lay a heavy emphasis on the entertainment experience with features such as Play To DLNA-based multimedia sharing technology with user-friendly settings and the ScanSearch AR app that delivers real-time information on shopping, dining, weather and more. Content captured on the phones can be shared on a TV or over speakers without the tangle of wires.

Andy Lees, President of the Mobile Communications Business at Microsoft,commented, “We are very excited to be working with LG, a mobile phone industry innovator. Windows Phone 7 is designed to bring together what you care about most and LG is a key partner in making that experience a reality for people around the world.”

There’s LG’s voice-to-text function that allows users to update Twitter or Facebook, compose memos or e-mails without resorting to finger input. The Optimus 7 series handsets integrate 5MP cameras with 720p HD video recording, Intelligent Shot, Panoramic mode and capture as well as playback options in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Just as expected, they’re also coming with Microsoft’s Xbox Live and Zune services.

“We have designed LG Optimus 7 series to include a truly innovative sharing experience via the Windows Phone 7 environment,” explained Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics. “Having worked closely with Micro-soft to develop these fantastic devices, we are thrilled to now be able to reveal our vision of what a true Windows Phone 7 should be.”

The highlight is Microsoft’s new OS with the Start screen design through Live Tiles that extends simpler access to information and services on the web and preferred user apps. The six Hubs of the mobile OS include People, Games, Music + Video, Pictures, Marketplace and Office. The Optimus 7 has a 3.8 WVGA LCD, while the Optimus 7Q uses a 3.5” screen, with both displays offering 800 x 480p resolution visuals.

Each smartphone offers 16GB of onboard memory and runs on a 1500mAh removable battery which is apparently ‘good for hours of internet browsing, e-book reading or game playing. Or for simply talking.’ The 7Q version embeds an ergonomic QWERTY keyboard and features Microsoft Word Mobile, Microsoft PowerPoint Mobile, OneNote Mobile and Excel Mobile.

Both Windows Phone 7 devices are slated to be released across more than 35 nations, starting with Europe and Asia on October 21. The pricing details are foggy for now.
