While not too much is known about Microsoft's Pink project and Windows Mobile 7, it's clear that Microsoft's real next Windows Mobile release will change everything we know from Windows Mobile today. If you compare the 2000 Pocket PC platform with the 2009 Windows Mobile 6.5 platform, some things have changed but a lot is still the same. Now's Mary Jo Foley received some - as she writes - information from a "trustworthy source who requests anonymity" which includes hardware specifications of either Microsoft's Pink project or Windows Mobile 7. However, since Microsoft confirmed that it's not building its own phone, I would say that the specs bellow - if real - are the Windows 7 specs for Chassis 1 devices:

  • Core Requirements
    • Processor: ARM v6+, L2 Cache, VFP, Open GL ES 2.0 graphics HW (Qualcomm 8k, Nvidia AP15/16 and TI 3430 all meet spec)
    • Memory: 256 MB+ DRAM, 1 GB+ Flash (at least 512 MB fast flash – 5 MB/s unbuffered read at 4 K block size)
    • Display: WVGA (800×480) or FWVGA (854×480) 3.5" or greater diagonal
    • Touch: Multi-touch required
    • Battery: Sufficient to meet Days of Use LTK requirements
    • Controls: Start, Back, Send and End are required (Soft keys are allowed as long as they are always present)
  • Peripherals
    • Camera: 3 megapixel+, flash optional, 2nd camera optional (VGA resolution sufficient)
    • GPS: aGPS required
    • Sensors: Light Sensor, Compass (3 axis, 5 degrees, 100 Hz sample rate), Accelerometer (3 axis, 2mg resolution, 100 Hz sample rate) required
    • USB: High speed required, 20 MB/s transfer rate
    • Bluetooth: Bluetooth 2.1 required, must run Microsoft Bluetooth stack, CSR BlueCore6 or later recommended
    • WiFi: IEEE 802.11B/G required, must run Microsoft's native WiFi stack, Atheros 6002 or Broadcomm 4325 recommended
    • Connectors: Micro USB and 3.5mm Audio required
  • Options
    • FM Tuner: If tuner hardware is present it will be detected and supported by the Media application.
    • SD Card (Micro SD recommended)
    • DPAD, QWERTY and/or 12/20 key keyboards all optional
    • Haptics

That's some impressive hardware specs for a mobile device/smartphone if they turn out to be true. At the moment, I would take every Pink and/orWindows Mobile 7 information with some serious grain of salt.

Cheers ~ Arne
