This weekend the folks over at XDA-Developers managed to get their hands on what appears to be the first device-ready Windows Phone 7 ROM. As you can imagine, they got to work trying to crack the ROM right away, and this morning Engadget is reporting that some interesting details have been revealed. It's hard to say for sure, but the image above could very well be the HTC Mondrian, a device we don't know much about but whose name is referenced by the WP7 ROM. Let's not get too excited yet, as I'm sure you realize the above picture is rather generic looking, and could be a placeholder for the actual device.
From what has been discovered so far, the Mondrian will be sporting a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen display with 400x800 resolution by Optrex, and a 1.3GHz (nice!) Qualcomm QSD8650A/B Snapdragon processor, which interestingly has the capacity to support both GSM and CDMA networks. Also, you'll notice that the above devices seems to be fully touchscreen, so we're probably looking at what you may remember to be called Chassis 1.
We all know that nothing's final until it's official, so remember to keep your tub o' salt nearby. And don't forget that we're not expecting to see the first Windows Phone 7 device until September at the earliest, which doesn't take into account any delays that could easily come with a brand new OS and Microsoft's strict guidelines for how WP7 is expected to look and behave. All that aside, I'd love to give just about any device sporting an 1.3GHz processor a spin, wouldn't you? Sound off below!
