The truth about Microsoft Pink

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 29-Apr-2009 21:34

Today we saw lots of rumours around regarding smartphones. In one Verizon would be working with Apple to create an "iPhone lite". In another Verizon would also be working with Microsoft to create an "iPhone killer", dubber Pink.

So what's the truth? I got some information directly from one of the sources within, and basically he says Microsoft is not going into the phone hardware business.

Because of that Microsoft is not building a Zune-specific phone.

The company is actually deepening relationships with hardware partners - I was given a long list of reasons, but it comes down to creating better performing phones that are competitively priced, feature rich, easy-to-use and lustworthy.

There's a lot being done, starting with the upcoming availability of Windows Mobile 6.5 software that will enable OEM partners to build more compelling devices.

But for the moment, Microsoft is not creating a phone.
