Ballmer’s Speech Misinterpretated,No Windows 8 Phone As of Now

Steve Ballmer was addressing shareholders  annual meeting yesterday and when one of the shareholder asked shareholder asked “if we were in the post-PC era”.The statement he made after that question,has given rise to many bloggers articles around the web talking about the thing which he didn’t actually meant to say.This is what he said,

“Well one thing I know is, we’re certainly not, we are in the Windows era. We were, we are and we always will be. That’s kinda what we get paid to do. We’ve got broad Windows initiatives driving Windows down to the phone. With Windows 8, you’ll see incredible new form factors powered by Windows from tablets, small, large, pens, smaller, bigger, room-sized displays. We are in an era in which the range of smart devices is continuing to expand. That’s a fantastic thing for Microsoft. That is a real opportunity.”

 

So after this statement all the bloggers around the web started posting about steve confirming the Windows 8 phone totally misinterpreting the actual statement steve made during his reply.If you can carefully listen to the following recording you can easily make out that there’s a pause between the two words phone and windows 8.

At this moment all we can say that Windows 8 based phones are not coming as of now,but if you are still itching to get hands on with one of such devices then you might be interested in the ITG’s xpPhone2 which is expected to be released next year running windows 8 on it.

3 More Windows Phone Models Coming On November 7 At Microsoft Windows Phone Event

Microsoft has announced a Windows Phone event on the 7th of November. The news post on MSN also confirms that the event will see the launch of 3 additional Windows Phones running the Windows Phone 7 Series Mango update (7.5). I wonder whether Lenovo’s recently leaked phone is also going to be there. It look quite functional in the photos.

The November 7 Windows Phone Invite, Click to Enlarge

Redmond tech giant made no secret of the official launches though. The 3 phones that are going to be released are — the HTC Titan and the Focus S and Focus Flash from Samsung. The post also lets in on the specs of these phones. The Focus S will be following up the original Samsung Focus that was released last year on AT&T. It will have a 4.3inch Super AMOLED display and a 8MP camera. The Focus Flash will have the same display but smaller at 3.7inch. The aptly named HTC Titan will have the largest display of them all — a massive 4.7inch Super AMOLED display. All phones will apparently be able to shoot videos at 720p, which is great news. All three of these handsets will be exclusively available on AT&T and hence they will be available on special plans.

Amongst the officials present would be Andrew ‘Andy’ Lees (President, Windows Phone Division, Microsoft), Joe Belfiore (Corporate Vice President, Windows Phone Program, Microsoft) and several important members of the Windows Phone team. They will be on hand for those who have received backstage passes for interacting and (hopefully) answering questions. So we can expect some nice Windows Phone tidbits to come out from the event. As usual, we would be covering it right here on Windows 8 Beta

According to the MSN news piece, the invites also carry a tag line that says the 3 Windows Phones are not the only thing that Microsoft has in store for the attendees. Apparently, industry speculations suggest that there will be a newer version of Mango on these phones. Since the Mango updated was released just mere weeks back, it cannot be an actual upgrade. So it has to be a new feature that only these phones will have when they launch on November 7. 4G is already old hat and there’s already the HTC Radar 4G out there. So it has to be something else. You have to give it to the Microsoft event planners — a Window Phone 7 event on November 7th. I wonder if they will play on the number any further.

This is a ‘backstage’ event, meaning it is very exclusive and it will be more like a formal meeting than a presentation.

So far, other than Windows 8, Windows Phone has nothing really big coming up. May be better Xbox integration and that companion app we a month or so back.

Lenovo Making Windows Phone? Leaked Images Of Lenovo S2 Windows Phone Smartphone Surface

lenovo-s2-windows-phone-leaked-imagesIt seems like Lenovo is making a Windows phone of their own. In recent times, a lot of companies who have traditionally manufactured PC’s have gotten in to making smartphones. This started happening just as the first viable platform for such OEM’s became available in the market — Android. And now that Windows Phone has received positive critical feedback from across the industry, a lot of these companies are jumping in to making Windows Phone devices. Acer is amongst the latest of such companies to announce their intention of creating a Windows phone.

Now it seems like Lenovo is also pursuing the same trajectory but without letting out the slightest hint about it. Until now that is. Photos surfaced earlier this week showing off a hitherto unseen Windows Phone smartphone device. It is allegedly called the S2 and carries a clear Lenovo branding on top below the earpiece. From what is apparent in the photo, it has a 4.3 inch display and it runs Windows 7.5 Mango. It also seems to have a front-facing camera. The shape of the device is roundish and is very similar to the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet, which makes it more believable as an under-development Lenovo product.

The photo’s were posted by Winphonexap.com and they also talked about the possibility of an Android version also being in the pipeline. No specs or dates are available as of yet but rest assured that we will post about it as soon as we find out ourselves. Keep watching this space.
