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.

    it am quite certain that besides a few people here on zdnet no one is
    waiting for another windows mobile phone from htc with microsoft's
    name on it coming with a preinstalled twitter app.

    • agreed

      The smartphone market is too saturated to really
      get excited over yet another one hitting the
      market. Especially one with a Windows-based OS.
      And don't even get me started on Twitter...

        WiMo is bad, just bad, it makes a blackberry look like the phone of god.

        I like my $80 Nokia better than my WiMo6 smartphone and it sucks.

    When M$ will learn, no matter what they release, if isn't bug free, better than others, and WORLDWIDE available. It will be pointless!

  • Don't worry...we won't talk about this

    It looks really boring and featureless.

    It's a rumor probably started by M$ themselves to deflect some of the hype away from Apple and the announcement on the 25th of January.

    It strikes me more of a 'me too!' type rumor. "Look what we're doing! Look what we have!"

    Meh! M$ has been a mostly a 'me too' company for a long time now...
