Images of two handsets purportedly designed by Microsoft have appeared online, fuelling rumours that the software giant is preparing to dip its mighty toes into the mobile phone market. Microsoft_Turtle Microsoft's Turtle - taking design cues from the Pré? One of the handsets – thought to be called Turtle – looks very like …
somthing you would find in toys r us !!!
I see more CGI renders of theoretical products, but like the tablet "leaked" earlier this week there's no evidence these actually exist outside of a few drawings. And if they'll run WinMo, they'll automatically suck.
Waste of time
They should concentrate on the OS and let people like HTC do the job of handsets (who seem to be doing an amazing job so far).
That would be the pile of shite of a phone with an o/s from a company that Microsoft swallowed up, a phone so crap even T-Mobile wont give you anything more than pennies for it on their tradeup program.
Hardly something to boast about, its rather like saying "our last car was a trabant"
...too busy laughing at this Epic fail to type
They sure got the name right on one of the model, HAHAHAHAAAAA
I tried WM on a few phones, wow, talk about slow....
M$ are yet again trying to dip their toes into something they have no idea what they are doing, simply because someone else are doing well, but saying that, now most manufactures are stop making handsets with WM, they cant simply just dump it can they ? so..the only way to go ,.. is to make their own handsets, after almost 10 years of WM, one would expect that its almost faultless and fast, yet.. or from history of other M$ crap, they just got bigger, slower ..and more difficult to use.
Hope it runs android :lol:
If left closed and face down
the first may get confused with a mouse.
Come on el Reg. Nokia N97 lookalike?
The N97 is a three line keyboard and nothing like the picture. Four line keyboards are more akin to HTC stuff, like the tytn2 and touch pro2.
It is interesting to note the front screen is more Niokia like, than anything actually provided my Microsoft, so perhaps this will have winmo 7, or something that works. :) Or more likely they have ripped off the nokia and stuck it to the image of a made up phone.
Looks like a rough render. Maybe it has been "leaked" to find out possible interest levels.
MS do make some good hardware but for the love of god they should just stop with the phones right now. Windows mobile is a slow and hateful experience to use and those phones are really ugly.
