LG, ASUS, and Samsung Windows Phone 7 Series Devices Get Photographed

It had to happen eventually. There's no telling how many devices are in production right now that are going to eventually run Windows Phone 7 Series, but we can certainly tell how many there are right now, at least. Up until about a month ago, we thought we were just seeing about two devices, the ASUS manufactured hardware that's been running the Windows Phone 7 Series software every time we've seen it since the official announcement, and the LG manufactured device that appeared a few weeks ago.

Twitter is one of those things that seems to be in the natural order of selection nowadays, and that's why we're not shocked at all that Seesmic managed to find their way onto the stage today at MIX10, and showcase their build of a Twitter client.

Have you heard? The Game Developer's Conference (GDC) is going on right now, which is why it shouldn't go as a big surprise that all these companies are announcing things there. Yes, they'll generally have a video game/gaming twist to it, but that's okay.

Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Series Will Have 3D Gaming, Robust LIVE Integration

That title shouldn't be that big of a surprise. If you'll recall, the Zune HD does 3D gaming as well, and considering that the XNA Studios is heavily invested in the Personal Media Player, we're not surprised to hear (again) that XNA and Windows Phone 7 are going hand-in-hand.
