Microsoft has sent out a bizarre invitation to mobile movers and shakers ahead of its glitzy Windows Phone 7 Executive Event – a mocked-up Windows Phone 7 handset fashioned from Lego bricks.
Unearthed by Engadget, the flyers include a somewhat lo-fi image of the said phone, with the promise that ‘a real one is coming’. That’s a relief. Also included was a USB stick containing the invitation.
The first Windows Phone 7 handsets are set to debut amid much fanfare on October 11th at simultaneous events in London and New York.
Handsets expected to be showcased at the press calls include the Samsung Cetus, the HTC 7 Trophy and the latest in HTC’s media optimised HD range, the HD 7.
The HD 7 teams a 4.3-inch touchscreen display for enjoying high definition video on the move with an eight-megapixel camera and a dual core 1GHz processor.
Samsung’s effort, meanwhile, is home to a four-inch AMOLED touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera, a secondary camera for video calls as well as Bluetooth, USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi support.
Features of the HTC 7 Trophy have yet to be confirmed. But according to WMPoweruser, the handset will pack a 3.8-inch touchscreen panel, a 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 processor, 576MB RAM, a five-megapixel camera with LED flash and 8.5GB
