Microsoft Project Pink and Personal Tablet rumors reignite

The Microsoft “Project Pink” smartphone and personal tablet rumors have had a reboot this week, with both 9to5Mac and ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley each commenting on what snippets of insider news they’ve heard.  According to the normally Mac-centric site, Microsoft will be showing off two versions of their Pink self-branded smartphone, codenamed “Turtle” and “Pure”, with the former having a squared-circle shape and the latter being a more traditional candybar format.  Each will have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and be manufactured by Sharp.


Microsoft pick ad agency for Pink phone

According to AdWeek, Microsoft have awarded the marketing contract for its upcoming Pink phone to McCann Erikson, the company also responsible for its Windows Mobile advertising.  While Microsoft themselves continue to deny that they have their own cellphone in the works, the news – which neither they nor McCann would comment on – lends further weight to the ongoing rumors.
