Today LG announced that, through a partnership with Microsoft, users of Windows Phone 7 powered LG handsets will receive a free selection of WP7 applications.
Ten free applications, across a variety of categories including social networking, utilities, and gaming, worth over $30, will be given away every 60 days, and will be available for a period of 60 days. The apps will be available through the LG Application Store, which will launch on LG Windows Phone 7 devices.
""This collaboration with LG creates a win-win situation for consumers and developers and will further showcase the variety of quality games and applications available on Windows Phone 7," Brandon Watson, director for Windows Phone at Microsoft, said.
LG will also provide its own free applications through the LG Application Store. Some titles include Type n Walk, Voice SNS, and Subway AR. LG wasn't specific on when the titles would become available. Its first Windows Phone 7 device was the LG Optimus 7, which we recently reviewed.
