Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Mango handsets shown off with WP7 Samsung Galaxy S II
Microsoft has shown off a new range of Windows Phone 7 handsets with the upcoming devices all running the soon to be released Windows Phone 7 Mango update.
Outed during the its Worldwide Partner Conference Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of the OEM division, Steve Guggenheimer, showed off the recently leaked Windows Phone version of the hugely successful Samsung Galaxy S II handset.
"[The new Samsung phone is] very thin and light, and that's a theme we're going to see for Windows Phone 7 devices,” Guggenheimer announced to the Microsoft partners.
He added: "As the processors get [smaller], battery life improves and the screens get better, we're going to see phones with phenomenal screen resolution, a great battery life, meaning lightweight devices across the phones."
Touting as the Samsung Galaxy S II for the Windows Phone 7 OS, the upcoming device is expected to sport the same Super AMOLED display and minimalist form factor as its Android counterpart with a dual-core processor and 8-megapixel camera expected.
