Microsoft 'Pink' Smartphone Back on Track?

Microsoft is back in the rumor mill, thanks to some leaked documents that surfaced on a gadget blog. Described as marketing materials, the documents, if legitimate, describe Microsoft's plan to bring a branded smartphone to market dubbed "Pink."

Enterprise Mobile Today has the story on Microsoft's rumored release of Pink, which purportedly has the software giant already in agreement with carrier and OEM partners.


Is Microsoft's "Pink" phone project back on the front burner -- or at least on the side burner?

Gadget site Gizmodo claims to have come into a pile of marketing materials for the phantom Microsoft-branded (NASDAQ: MSFT) mobile device that it says indicates the top U.S. mobile carrier, Verizon Wireless, will be one of the software giant's launch partners.

"Today, we can confirm: Pink is coming, and Verizon's the carrier," said a post on Gizmodo Thursday.

Gizmodo has been trumpeting news of Pink -- the codename for the as-yet-unconfirmed, Microsoft smartphone -- since last September, when it obtained what it claims are photos of the device. The Pink phones will be built by Sharp, according to the site.
