Over the weekend, a ROM build has leaked which is said to come from HTC's first Windows Phone 7 smartphone and the ROM build was named "Mondrian". In the past, HTC often called their Beta ROM builds after the device and therefore it could make sense that the Mondrian is the first Windows Phone 7 device from HTC, even if it's most likely that Mondrian is the code-name only, rather than the commercial name. Nevertheless, while the ROM is yet not useable on any of the existing Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones, some developers dived deep into the bits and bytes and extracted some interesting information. For instance a rendering of a device which could possibiliy show the Mondrian:

While Windows Phone 7 will not use Microsoft's Mobile Device Center anymore but the Zune Player software, Microsoft introduced with the Mobile Device Center an option to display the currently connected device on the PC. Now it's speculated that the Zune Player will feature a similar functionality and that the device above might shows the Mondrian. For sure it also could be just a dummy device but it seems to be legit anyway.
Furthermore the developers found out, that the Mondrian is described to lack a physical keyboard (not a surprise at all) but sporting a 4.3" WVGA Optrex touchscreen. Last but not least it was found out, that the Mondrian seems to be powered by a Qualcomm Scorpion CPU at 1.3 MHz.

How is that it was "found out" if it only "seems" to be that there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.3 Ghz CPU in this possibly or non-existent device?  The wording sucks monkey ass in your articles, but first, your research and reckless re-posting of speculative-at-best information weighs down the importance of your articles.  I used to believe in theunwired.  Get well soon!
