LG Quantum Hands On [Video]

Our hands on treatment of the Windows Phone 7 devices isn't over, and this time around we've got the LG Quantum. The Quantum is one of the three devices heading to AT&T this year, and just like the rest of the Windows Phone 7 brethren, it has plenty of features to sway any potential buyer into its neck of the woods. The Quantum, though, is the one unique device to feature a full QWERTY keyboard, which reveals itself in a landscape slider.

With our initial hands on, we noticed that the device features the same DLNA connectivity as the LG Optimus 7. LG is calling it "Play To" and it will let you play your 720p HD video, pictures, and music to other DLNA devices, which should help with the wireless playback of your media. The device features 16GB of internal memory, has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood, and a 5MP camera on the back.

Our first impressions of the Quantum are pretty "on the fence." The aesthetics of the device are not immediately attractive, especially when compared to the other Windows Phone 7 devices launching (even on AT&T). But, while the outside of the device may not be all that great, and it certainly features the smallest display of all the devices launched, the keyboard is amazing. The keys offer great feedback, and they are tactile in such a great way that we're confident this could be one of the best hardware keyboards out there. (Or coming, to be exact.) Does it make the complete package? Check out the video below to make your own decision.
