What could potentially be a launch phone for Windows Phone 7 has been leaked. The Dell Lightning will certainly be an impressive device.

The Lightning has a slide-out Qwerty keyboard that comes out from the bottom of the phone, instead of most other slider phones with keyboards that comes out of the side.

Engadget got its hands on all the Lightning details which are quite impressive. In addition to a 5-megapixel camera and larger-than-usual 4.1-inch OLED display, the device packs in a 1 GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon processor.

There's 8 GB of storage and 512 MB of RAM, making some of the specs at the baseline of Phone 7 requirements and some that go beyond. There's also a GPS built-in, accelerometer, and full Flash support (yeah, that's right!)

It will also have Xbox Live and Zune functionality per the Phone 7 specifications. Obviously there's no release date or pricing details that came out of the leak, but it's a good showing of the kinds of devices we can expect out of Windows Phone 7.
