What's this? Two devices apparently of Microsoft origin in Verizon's database
prefixed by MSONE and MSTWO on the eve of Microsoft's big presser
-- an event widely thought (and even announced
) to be the unveiling of Project Pink
. We're also seeing Sharp, the Sidekick manufacturer named on the Turtle
looking handsets that passed through the FCC. Really though, "One" and "Two?" Surely those words are just placeholders awaiting today's event before getting properly named, right? Who knows... when you're believed to be launching a competing platform against your own Windows Phone 7 OS while simultaneously keeping the WinMo 6.x dreams alive for businesses, hell, anything goes.
Update: 9 to 5 Mac
that the actual retail names of the devices will be Kin. As in next of, as in family. Since the company has an event in just a few hours, we'll obviously know for certain very soon, but it does look likely given the use of Kin in the listing above.
