The LG Quantum is designed more for business users and features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It will be available from AT&T in time for the holidays with a price tag of $199.99 with a two-year contract.

As we mentioned, the Quantum features a full QWERTY keyboard to help e-mail fanatics crank out messages with ease. Interestingly, the home screen doesn't switch to landscape mode when the keyboard is open, or at least it didn't on the demo units.

Overall, we found the Quantum's keyboard fairly comfortable to type on. The buttons are a good size with decent spacing between them. You also get a dedicated key for emoticons.

As with all Windows Phone 7 devices, the LG Quantum features three shortcut keys below the display: back, start, and search. The Quantum features two touch-sensitive keys and one physical button.

Despite having a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the Quantum was relatively thin. The right side features a volume rocker and a camera button.

Like many of the other phones, the smartphone is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture.

As an Orange phone, the Optimus 7 will offer a number of the carrier's services, as well as DLNA support (called Play To) so you can wirelessly stream data from your phone to a DLNA-compliant device. The LG Quantum will also have this feature.
