It may be a long way from release, but early details have been released on the upcoming mobile operating system, Windows Mobile 7, from Microsoft.
Despite the proposed 2010 release date, a set of specifications under the Windows Mobile 7 Chassis 1 monicker have been sneaked out of Microsoft's development office, according to the ZDnet website. Despite the proviso that the specifications are a few month's old, the related information has also been seen, by some observers, as a possible connection to the rumoured Microsoft mobile phone concept, known as the Pink.
Apparently, the operating system requires at least an ARM6 processor with L2 cache to run properly, along with 256MB of RAM, a minimum 1GB of flash memory and a large screen of 3.5 inches. Supported screen resolutions include WVGA (800×480) or FWVGA (854×480). Other requirements include a multi-touch facility, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, an accelerometer, a light sensor, a compass, microUSB and a 3.5mm headphone socket.
