New Samsung Windows Phone 7 Series handset

Samsung 7

New devices are something that we all are interested to see when it comes to Windows Phone 7 Series.

We have seen so far a prototype, an LG Slider and now a new shiny Samsung slate. While doing a ‘7’ demo at MIX Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore produced the Samsung, which has not been seen before. Although the specs has not been announced just yet it will have to meet the minimum specs so will have at least a 256MB of RAM and 8GB of flash and those all important three keys. I would imagine we will hear more about this device over the coming days. It sure looks sweet though with its Super AMOLED screen and shiny chrome outer edge.

Microsoft also confirmed that the HTC HD2 would not be eligible for an upgrade to Windows Phone 7 Series. We already knew this from our two interviews with Microsoft, but once again they have said it is due to the HD2 not having those special three buttons. I feel for you guys that bought the HTC HD2 thinking it would be eligible but its not going to happen. It will be interesting to see exactly how the new ‘7’  devices compare spec wise. Maybe the HD2 isn’t up to the job?
