Microsoft Confirms Windows Mobile 7 At MWC; Caught Running On i-Mate JASJAR?

Labels: , , , , ,

Microsoft has finally mentioned and confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 will make an appearance at MWC 2010. This is great news since a lot of people have been wondering "what's up?" with Microsoft's upcoming update to their mobile OS. WinMo 7 should have multitouch support and could bring things like integration with Xbox Live and all of those popular social networking sites. WinMo 7 is also expected to feature minimal requirements such as a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 8GB of internal storage, an 800 x 480 touchscreen display, 3G / WiFi / GPS support. They're definitely going after the high-end market with their next mobile OS which should put pressure on the future of Android and the iPhone.

MWC kicks off on February 15th so mark it on your calendars.

Update: According to Unwired View, a new picture has been surfacing online of an old-school i-mate JASJAR running Windows Mobile 7 (above). This is actually extremely weird since the minimal specs for WinMo 7 are way more than what this phone can handle. The JASJAR only has 64MB of RAM and 128MB of ROM. Apparently the minimal specs we heard are actually inaccurate. The "new" supposed list of requirements (and recommendations) are below.

  • Minimum RAM: 128MB (at least 256MB is recommended though)
  • Minimum ROM: 512MB
  • CPU: 600MHz ARM v6+
  • 3.6 inch display is not a requirement
  • WVGA resolution is not necessary – WM7 phones will have various resolutions, including QVGA
  • Compass is not a requirement (although it’s recommended)
  • G-Sensor (accelerometer) is also not a requirement, but it’s recommended
