Microsoft's Project Pink Might Be Dead In The Water

To say we were unimpressed with the first leaked shots to come out of Microsofts "Project Pink" would be a bit of an understatement. This was Microsoft's first in-house foray into the mobile hardware space, and we'd been hearing tales of it for years; yet in the end, what we were seeing was bad enough that we equated the two leaked devices to "a midgie Pre and a Touch Pro crossed with a jellybean".And now, it all begins to make sense. We were recently contacted by a source with a seemingly exhaustive knowledge of Microsoft's Project Pink, and what they've shared with us doesn't sound good. If what they've shared is true, it seems that the project as a whole began -- and will likely end -- in vain.
