According to a listing on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's (SIG) website the LG C900 - thought to be one of the first Windows Phone 7 handsets due to hit the shelves — will be available from 'around' 28 September.

Until now Microsoft has reiterated its 'holiday 2010' release window for the first Windows Phone 7 devices, but the listing on the Bluetooth SIG indicate the LG C900's release as planned for sometime around the 28 September.

The listing, somewhat unsurprisingly considering the source of the info, confirmed Bluetooth 2.1 is a dead cert, but little else of the handset's specifics. Leaked pictures of the device at EngadgetMobile.com show that it also packs a four-row sliding Qwerty keyboard into the chassis.

According to CNET UK's Crave blog it should arrive in the US bound for the AT&T network — which should mean it will work fine in the UK too.

Microsoft minimum requirements for Windows Phone 7 handsets dictate that the phone should arrive with a 1GHz (or better) processor, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and A-GPS.
