On the aesthetics' aspect,imo Pure wields the winning hand while Turtle are well...like its namesake...I think it seriously needs a rethink like maybe holding off the curved keys' cheesy element,take Palm Pixi's no BS alignment/layout and probably do a slightly squared overall dimensions' off the Pre.Hard for me to think of any other orig ideas to throw in but then again MS is new to the game.
And then some,that is after they weeded out the industrial design kinks there's also the critically important internal hardware specs & features if they're planning to seriously challenge the likes of Samsung,Nokia and/or HTC etc.
Above all else,project Pink has to really really underscore the OS ambitions.WinMo 7?Looking at that as a brand,people out there are still baffled on why MS separately track the desktop counterpart to its mobile sibling the way it is for years now.Something that they shouldn't have done with Win 7 by now,but too late they already did.When you scatter your developmental resources that way,you simply lose the important focus hence endangering the scope of success.
It'll be interesting to see if or should MS decide to tackle this particular subject aggressively and effectively.
I dunno, but I'm kind of liking how they look like, they look really small but the screen's big enough, and it looks like there's no physical keys for navigation so I guess they'll have touch screen, plus there's the physical keyboard which is very important (well for people like me who's into texting and is used to the physical keyboard). hope the'll hit the market soon...
the second 1 looks ok, but the first one is not acceptable, i cant imagine going out with that piece of crap.
[deleted post]The same LOL for Turtle :)
Come on Microsoft, disappointed to see this picture. Get some better designers.
We can't judge now, let's wait and see. But in my opinion, if Microsoft does not want to make its softwares and hardwares by its own, the Microsoft company will never be able to deliver to us excellent quality products, they still have plenty and plenty of problems with Windows..
they don't look much like phones at all!
Looks like someone from MS watched to many teenage mutant ninja turtles cartoons :D
They look... cheap to say the least! The turtle looks like a stripped-down, low-end version of the Pre...
Looks pretty basic and simple... Minimalist some will say and I totally like that.
its junk like other microsoft's product aaaagh
"the labs aren't as leak-free as the people in Redmond hoped"
ROFL - leaks? No, these are teasers. Same two tantelizing yet not too revealing shots for each phone.
QA1???? jajajaja, are really..............i have no words......... ugly is short, unconfortable...no, i dont know jajajajaj that it!!!!! the words are "jajajajajajajaja"
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2009disgusting. and to think i was excited about zunephone. yuckah, come on; the Pure looks like a lot of handsets coming out. it's hardly 'disgusting'!
i think it'll be interesting to see what M$ come up with. considering they've been a provider of OSes and hardware peripherals for so long, it's taken them a long time to take a crack at a phone.
That looks exactly like the Palm Pre. What is Microsoft thinking?
I must say the phones look pretty interesting, can't wait for more news!
I think they are horrible....
disgusting. and to think i was excited about zunephone. yuck
