Microsoft Project Pink webcast sneaks in early Turtle sighting

Microsoft's Project Pink event is scheduled to take place in around twelve hours time, and SlashGear will be there to bring you all the details.  However, if you'd like a sneak peek at one of the devices themselves, head over to Microsoft's livestream page; the event may not be running, but either accidentally or on purpose there's a Project Pink "Turtle" in view.  Already well leaked over the past few months, the Turtle is expected to be - along with its "Pure" counterpart - a QWERTY slider prioritizing mobile social networking.

Microsoft Pink Confirmed by SanDisk

Microsoft Pink Confirmed by SanDisk

Here's a real quick, albeit pretty substantial leak from a company that should probably know better. Courtesy of PhoneScoop, SanDisk has spilled the beans on Microsoft's big upcoming project. If you'll recall, Verizon Wireless was last spotted teasing that something big was coming. And while there were all sorts of rumors swirling around which handsets could be included in that box thrown through a paper sheet. But, the general consensus was Project Pink from Microsoft. And, on top of that Microsoft gave us an invite to an event this coming Monday, April 12th. All the stars are lined up, and now we have a confirmation, that Pink is, indeed, the announcement.

Microsoft Pink leaks again: April 20th Verizon launch? [Update: & Vodafone!]

Microsoft's been a leaky old sieve lately, with Courier slipping out earlier and even more Project Pink news just now.  After yesterday's Verizon revelation and the subsequent firmware leak comes new images of the two Sharp-manufactured Pink phones, the Pure and Turtle, themselves, along with a potential launch date of April 20th.

Update: Apparently the devices will also get an international launch - in their GSM formats - with carrier Vodafone.

Microsoft Project Pink getting imminent Verizon launch? [Updated]

Microsoft Project Pink getting imminent Verizon launch? [Updated]

Microsoft's oft-rumored Project Pink consumer cellphone platform has seemingly had another shot of credibility in the arm today, with Gizmodo claiming to have been sent a stack of promotional materials tipping a near launch.  As well as reusing the same graphic of the so-called Turtle phone as we saw leaked last year, they also confirm Verizon as the carrier and position the handset as a social media-centric messaging device.

[Update: New tipsters have apparently confirmed that both the Turtle and the Pure (aka the Sharp PB10ZU and the PB20ZU) will be available, and are likely to launch in late April 2010.  The production names are still not finalized, but the UI shares some of Windows Phone 7's appearance along with "some sort of UI skin/more of a social-networking edge".]

Windows Phone 7 details leak: No multitasking, UI lock-down & Zune/Xbox integration?

Windows Phone 7 details leak: No multitasking, UI lock-down & Zune/Xbox integration?

Microsoft have already confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 is going to make at least a partial debut at Mobile World Congress 2010 in a little over a week's time, but so far all we've had is rumors as to what exactly they'll be showing off.  Now, according to PPCGeeks' sources, more details are known: they reckon the new Windows Phone 7 UI will be the main draw at MWC, with Microsoft holding off on specific functionality, but they do have a run-down of what we can expect from the updated smartphone platform.  Unfortunately, not all of it fills us with glee.

As we've heard rumored, there's a lot borrowed from the Zune platform injected into Windows Phone 7.  The smartphone UI - apparently codenamed "METRO" - looks much like that of the Zune HD we're told, with a fresh new Start screen; it's described variously as "very clean", "soulful" and "alive".  Hopefully it really will be, since third-party or OEM UIs are apparently not to be permitted; that means no HTC Sense and no other apps such as SPB Mobile Shell.

Zune software tips Pink Pure and Turtle phone connection

Zune software tips Pink Pure and Turtle phone connection

Some detailed digging through the latest version of Zune software has turned up numerous references to what looks to be phone capability, along with some product codenames, leading to suggestions that the rumored Zune phone and the Project Pink handsets could in fact all be in the same family.  Zune Boards discovered not only the Zune HD but the PmxPure and PmxTurtle lurking in the eEndpointFamily files - the section which details all compatible hardware - references recognizable as the codenames for the two leaked Project Pink devices spotted in September last year.

Meanwhile further entries referred to the ability to "View and manage pictures and videos taken with your phone at the Studio", with users able to sign up as "Studio members".  The suggestion is that this could be Microsoft's new media upload service, enabling content produced on the handset to be shared via a web gallery.
