After we gained a little bit more knowledge about the mysterious Microsoft "Project Pink" story, another tidbit has come out today.

While Microsoft has not commented or confirmed the codename Pink gadget, CNET is reporting that it will be targeted towards younger audiences (teens and/or twenty-somethings?) - and it will released this spring. Doesn't that mean we should see an official announcement soon?

Supposedly different from any Windows Mobile 7 consumer handheld, it will also have a special emphasis on social networking and communication. Sounds about right for a youthful smartphone.

But it seriously taking so long to get information about this unconfirmed product that it feels like we're pulling our own teeth out. I hope that Project Pink doesn't turn out to be the next Apple Tablet rumor mill. I'm a bit tired of this.
