The LG Windows Phone device has been in the rumor mills for some time now, with an ad network revealing the existence of the device last year. Now, we also have the Bluetooth certification of the device.

According to previous rumors, the device will pack in some modest specs including a 4.7-inch display of WVGA (800x480p) resolution.
