LG Fantasy WP7 Appears In Our Forums, Expected To Come In Q1 2012
Forum member untitledmangxg claims to have bought an LG Fantasy from a developer/engineer in Romania. According to him, the Windows Phone 7 device is set to be released in the first quarter of 2012.

- Logo and earpiece on the rendering look smaller compared to the rest of the device, suggesting it to be bigger than the actual device which the forum member claims to have a 4″ screen.
Meanwhile, check out the forum thread for more information, and pester the OP for some better images. No really, be nice.
