Microsoft is planning two Pink phones, the Turtle and the Pure, both made by Sharp. The Turtle actually looks like Palm’s Pre while the Pure is a side-slide phone. Both Pink Phones have QWERTY keyboard and will run Windows Mobile OS, of course.
No technical details of these phones are available yet.
Sharp produced the Sidekick hardware for Danger, who was bought by Microsoft almost two years ago. Pink will be primarily aimed at the same market as the Sidekick, and the branding and identity for it is highly developed, pointing toward a later stage in the development cycle.
The prior relationship between Danger and Sharp is the only reason we can think of why Microsoft stuck with Sharp for the new phones, and perhaps why they look so much like remixed Sidekicks.
