Blogger throws light on Windows Mobile devices of the future
Even though this might be pure speculation, anything that is related to Windows Mobile 7, the upcoming Smartphone OS from Microsoft, does manage to ruffle a few feathers.
In a string of Windows Mobile 7 related news, here is a blog post by ZDNet blogger Mary Jo Foley, who seems to have stumbled upon the "system requirements" for running the upcoming OS from Microsoft. The list, as expected, is far from official, as Microsoft has never spoken in public about Windows Mobile 7.
The hardware requirements include mandatory support for multi-touch with the software support for zooming in for images and controlling games. There is also this interesting requirement for the device to sport at least a 3.2 megapixel camera. Next comes GPS support, which is mandatory as well. Apart from these, a compass and accelerometer are also required. On the connectivity front, the device should be USB High, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi: 802.11B/G compliant. Connector support comes in the form of Micro USB and a 3.5mm audio jack.
This information reportedly comes from a trusted source and only time will tell how much of this actually turns out to be true.
