Windows Phone 7 limited to peculiar handsets, the chassis fear comes true

February 24, 2010, By Atul Roach

The Windows Phone 7 had us excited when it first went public at the MWC 2010 but that chassis fear has returned to haunt us again. Microsoft kept mocking at Apple for restricting the iPhone OS to only the Apple smartphones, it is now doing the same thing itself. Confirmed words have come from Microsoft Australia Developer Evangelists who talk about the existence of chassis implying that Windows Phone 7 will be embracing selective smartphones only, although, better specs will be an advantage.

The number of chassis will be restricted to a modest three and while the first two have been partially detailed, the third still remains a mystery.

Borax Live and Zune integration was something yummy but not everyone will get to know the flavor. Chassis One devices will be touchscreen only and will feature 1 GHz processor and dedicated graphics acceleration with a GPU intact. Other specifications include a 5 megapixel camera, four-point multitouch, FM radio, GPS and an accelerometer . These are the handsets which shall arrive later this year.

Chassis Two requirements include physical sliding QWERTY keyboards and the touch sensitive ones as well. Regarding the Chassis Three category, the insiders only mention that it ‘could’ be a candybar style handset. [via: Engadget]
