As the launch of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 operating system nears launch, handsets from HTC, Samsung, Asus and LG have been appearing in the wild, some prototypes, some retail units.

LG’s E900 Optimus 7 has leaked a couple of times previously, in some hilariously bad quality blurrycam shots that have been modified to such an extent it’s difficult to make out what you are looking it. Yesterday, Microsoft’s Netherlands took to its Twitter account to show one of the above mentioned blurrycam shots, this time without the distortion.

The device looks like it could be Vodafone bound (notice the Vodafone 360 services) although Microsoft wouldn’t be drawn for comment.

As more devices leak, we are starting to build a clear picture of the possible launch devices come October, building buzz for the brand and giving developers a feel that the operating system will be a successful platform on which to submit their apps.
