Windows Mobile 7 is still quite far away (it should come in 2010), but it looks like we can already get a glimpse of it.
The folks over at ZDNet have stumbled upon a list of specs that, reportedly, are for “the Windows Mobile 7 Chassis 1”.
Apparently, the Chassis 1 is the heart of the rumored Microsoft Pink phone and it could also be used in other Windows Mobile 7 handsets.
It’s said that the leaked list comes from a trustworthy source, although it’s a few months old – thus the specs might have changed in the meantime.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s exactly what ZDNet says the WM7 Chassis 1 specifications might be:
