Samsung Windows Phone 7 device spotted in the wildAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
You know how I can tell that we're getting closer to the launch of Windows Phone 7? There are devices leaking left and right. Today we've got a new one for you, as photos of a previously-unseen Samsung device running Windows Phone 7 have leaked. The pictures come from @andrejt, a developer on Twitter that was able to get some hands-on time with the device. Details about the handset are pretty much non-existant right now, but the examining the design leads most to believe that this is not the Samsung Cetus that we've seen in the past. Until more information comes to light, feel free to drool over the two pictures that we have right now.
It's pretty disappointing that we don't have any specs to go along with the photos that were leaked today, especially considering we haven't gotten much in the way of specs with any of these Windows Phone 7 leaks. Still, we've heard in the past that the OS will be landing in the U.S. in November, so we're not far off from actually seeing devices unveiled and then hitting retail. I just hope that Microsoft is able to push out plenty of WP7 devices to several different carriers to encourage adoption of the OS. With webOS 2.0 and Android 3.0 also rumored to launch later this year, Microsoft is going to have some stiff competition.
