I have made my mind, I am calling this week the Microsoft gadgets leakage week. Why? First it was leaked details of Turtle, followed by Pure and now its the big fish, Courier. That’s right the details of Microsoft’s digital journal/tablet and a lot of high quality images have been leaked. More on that after the jump.
A few hours back, we shared with you leaked details of one of Microsoft’s Project Pink Phone, Turtle. Images and related details of Pure, the second mobile phone of the Redmodian’s project have been leaked out. It is claimed to have Windows Mobile 7 like animations, a better panel based interface than Android etc. More details after the jump.
Have doubts about the existence of Microsoft’s Project Pink ? We can tell you that the phone is real and Verizon will be performing the carrier duties. Gizmodo has received some third party marketing material that has led to this news. More details after the jump.
A couple of days back, Microsoft launched the overdue Facebook app for Zune HD. Ever since its launch, I was looking for a video that will show the app in action.

Yesterday, Microsoft unleashed the much awaited Facebook app for Zune HD. Unfortunately, it ran into a major issue as soon as it was launched, as the app was not able to connect to Facebook.

How would you like a telephone service that will provide you transcribe and translation features in real time? Microsoft‘s Translating Telephone is the name you should remember if you are looking for such a phone.

When Microsoft announced Windows Phone 7 Series at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress, I thought that was the end of road for Windows Mobile 6.5 and no more updates would be rolled out from the Redmondians. A recent tweet by a Microsoftie as pointed out by I’m Just Being Manan suggests otherwise. From the tweet it appears Microsoft have baked an update for their current mobile platform, Windows Mobile 6.5.5 which is ready for prime time.
Google’s ever growing video portal, YouTube will stop supporting IE6 starting from 13th March. This is not the first Google service to phase out Internet Explorer 6 support. We all know Google’s plan to end IE6 support for Google Docs and Google Sites starting from 1st March.
Windows Phone 7 Series has come with a bang. There should be no second thoughts about that. And since this is a Microsoft product, leakages of all sorts are always on the card. WMPowerUser has gotten it hands on a Windows Phone 7 Series advertisement. There is no telling if it is the original one or is it one to throw in the fake bin. You can see the commercial after the jump.
Just in – Internet Explorer 9 is scheduled to make an appearance at Microsoft‘s MIX 2010 event. Dean Hachamovich will be delivering his keynote at MIX10. Hachamovich is the General manager of the team and is in charge of the design, development and releases of Microsoft’s browser IE, so it would be an interesting session to say the least. Who knows may be we would get a Beta release in our hands. What will be the agenda of IE9 is an interesting question. The answer to which is given after the jump.
