LG Miracle Windows Phone tipped for a spring release
While Nokia has understandably been going all out with their Windows Phone releases, LG has been surprisingly quiet on the Windows Phone front. They have been trying to become a high end Android manufacturer, but their first device to run Windows Phone 7 was merely okay.
According to today's leak from PocketNow, LG is now aiming to get back in with the Windows Phone crowd, and is betting on a Miracle to do it. All joking aside, "Miracle" is actually supposed to be the codename for LG's latest Windows device, which doesn't look too bad for a mid-range smartphone. It will be packed with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 4-inch 800 x 480 NOVA display, 5MP 720p capable camera, and VGA front facing camera.
Windows Phone 7.5 is powering the Miracle, and should be sufficient, at least for now. There is no information about possible updates, but the presence of a currently unsupported NFC chip suggest that LG plans to upgrade the device to Windows 8, which would certainly earn it points from Windows fans.
The Miracle is also rumored to support HSPA cellular networks, which means it will probably launch on either AT&T or T-Mobile. However, no further launch details are known, and the only timeframe we have is that the device should launch sometime this spring.[PocketNow via Anything but iPhone]
