Microsoft Project Pink rumors bring about ‘Pure’ talk after Sharp PB20ZU shows up in FCC filing

February 25, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A new FCC filing has provided more strength to talk on Microsoft’s Project Pink phone project. Significantly, this comes just as a few days after regulatory passage of the PB10ZU from Sharp. Close on the heels of the device expected to be the pebble-shaped Turtle comes the latest filing, for the PB20ZU. And, the latest FCC filing correlates with the second design.

Rumors mills have started working overtime since then. Project Pink’s rumored second phone, likely to be known as the ‘Pure’, is what the Sharp PB20ZU is all about. Or so say the experts. The Pure has been presented in rumor domains as a phone with the conventional slide-out QWERTY keyboard and touch screen design. These details make the phone almost similar to the Turtle.

From the little we know as of now, the Pure could be a device that would run on CDMA networks. This could also mean that Verizon, or Sprint could be the carriers. Other features include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi options and the phone could be first introduced in the entry-level category. It is also being speculated that the Pure would deploy NVIDIA Tegra chips and run on Microsoft’s Premium Mobile Experience. But then, we don’t have any confirmation on this.

Most likely to be co-branded as a Microsoft-Sharp phone, we guess the Pure might show up shortly. We will just wait for it to come.
