Microsoft’s loving Gizmodo lately.
Steve Ballmer displayed Gizmodo’s gushing take on the upcoming Windows 7 phone during his speech at UW today.
Meanwhile, the gadget blog has an early glimpse of Microsoft’s “Pink” phone, which its sources say is coming to Verizon in April and built by Sharp. Here’s a screenshot from the blog:
The long-awaited consumer phone is geared toward avid social networkers, apparently aiming for the spot the Sidekick had early on. Pink is the product of the Sidekick development team, which Microsoft acquired in February 2008.
Also coming with Pink is a more horizontal version (his and hers?) called Pure. Gizmodo’s report says they’re based on a version of Windows CE.
