Price Drop: LG Optimus 7 Now $49.99 on TELUS

LG Optimus 7

Some quick pricing news on the LG Optimus 7 for my Canadian mobile friends. Coming to us direct from TELUS, it looks like the carrier has dropped the price of the Windows Phone 7 powered LG Optimus 7 to $49.99 on a 3-year contract. Other contract and pricing options remain unchanged, at $399.99 on a 2-year, $449.99 on a 1-year, and no term for $499.99. You’d think TELUS wants you to sign a juicy new 3-year deal on the LG Optimus 7 by looking at these contract prices, now wouldn’t you? 😛

Besides packing some obvious Windows Phone 7 goodness, the LG Optimus 7 also packs a 5 MP camera with flash and 720p HD video recording, integrated Bing search, Bluetooth, speakerphone, WiFi, 3.8″ WVGA touchscreen, 16GB of internal memory and much more.

For all the details, pop on over to TELUS.

A great price on what looks to be a solid device for sure, but if you’re of the belief that Windows Phone 7 needs some bugs ironed out before you’d even consider a switch… I can’t blame you. Earlier today we noted that WP7 appears to be consuming more, much more 3G data than expected. I suppose all we can hope (for Windows fans and Microsoft’s sake) is that Redmond get their collective butts in gear to smooth out any wrinkles before Android, BlackBerry 6 and iOS pass them by for good.
