19 Jan 2010  1 Comment


I know I just got my Nexus One, but WMC is next month and the rumor mill is going crazy. It looks like Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Mobile 7 might be the long awaited Zune Phone AKA Project Pink. Steve Ballmer (CEO of Microsoft) did confirm in an interview last month that the new Windows Mobile 7 will have integrated Zune functionality, but didn’t give any further details.

What’s exiting about this is not only the software, but also the hardware.The rumored device (LG Apollo) Specs are just insane:

  • Launching: August/September 2010
  • CPU: Qualcomm QSD8650; 1.3GHz
  • CDMA + GSM (aka a World Phone)
  • EvDO + HSDPA
  • Device Size: 115 x 57.5 x 11.2 mm
  • Memory (RAM/ROM): 1GB/1GB
  • External Storage: MicroSD (up to 32GB)
  • Screen Size/Type: 3.8-inch capacitive AMOLED “Multitouch Supported”
  • Screen Resolution: WXGA 1280 x 720 px
  • Camera: 10-megapixel with flash and autofocus; HD 720p video@ 30fps
  • Video Support: Windows Media Video (WMV), MPEG-4 (MP4/M4V) H.264, DVR-MS4
  • Audio Support: Windows Media Audio (WMA), Advanced Audio Coding (AAC-LC), FairPlay DRM, MP3

  • Standby Time: 288 hours
  • Internet Use: 4.5 hours (3G), 6.5 hours (WiFi)

    If apple keep releasing a new iteration of their iphone with a one year old HW specs and lacking the simplest features (flash, 3G camera, 3G internet restriction … ), they will loose many market shares in one or two years !
