Default More Project Pink News

"Taking a glance at the renders, it's clear that at least one model is that Pre-like phone we spied the other day, supposedly (and creatively) codenamed "Turtle." The other device is dubbed the "Pure," and unfortunately for Microsoft, looks like the G1 having a bad hair day... in 1988. Both devices bear a kind of child-like, simplistic look, which actually makes us wonder if these aren't some concept pieces geared toward the youth market."

I think Engadget pegged this right - Pink phones aren't aimed at smartphone users at all, even if the underlying OS is still some version of Windows Mobile and the specs are derived from WM7 chasis 1 specs. On the other hand, this is a refreshing if risky venture by Microsoft - what do you guys think?

It looks like they borrowed pretty heavily from the Pre hardware-wise

It's been said before, but if they're trying to push a consumer mobile platform, why don't they just stick a cellular modem in the zuneHD. These renders look like cheap pieces of crap.

They are supposed to take the place of the side kick - so they are right on par. Nothing wrong with the way they look because they ARE geared toward teen agers. Did you ever see a side kick - they were even uglier and the kids used them.
