Microsoft to Debut New Line of Phones April 12
Today the Wall Street Journal reports that Microsoft is prepared to unveil a new series of devices on April 12. Citing sources "familiar with" Microsoft's plans, the devices will be aimed at younger users, will be heavily geared towards users of social networks, and will launch on Verizon Wireless' network in the coming months. The Journal says the devices in question fall under the "Project Pink" moniker, and were developed by the former Danger team (which developed the SideKick line of devices). The "Project Pink" devices will not run Windows Phone 7, but will run a new operating system developed by Microsoft for this type of user. The devices will be made by Sharp, Danger's long-time manufacturing partner. The FCC approved a device made by Sharp with a CDMA radio on board in February of this year. It's possible the FCC-approved Sharp device is one of the new phones in question. Microsoft has not confirmed, this, but Phone Scoop was invited by Microsoft to attend a special event on April 12 in San Francisco.
