Microsoft Pink phones are real; headed to Verizon?Aaron Baker - Director, Content and Partnerships
The leaks continue about Microsoft's Pink phones hitting the marketplace, with the latest suggesting that two models will land at Verizon Wireless (with an exlusivity agreement) on April 20th. The Pure and the Turtle - the two models shown in the pictures here - will be the first two devices in the lineup, and will indeed be targeted toward the 13-17 and 18-29 demographics. The device is said to be a featurephone instead of a full smartphone, and the ad campaign will center around "truly, madly, deeply" campaign found in recent Twitter updates (wonder if they'll use the Savage Garden song to go along with it?).
The question remains - in a smartphone world (one where you can get an iPhone 3G for $99), will the Pink devices really take off?
