ZDnet’s Mary-Jo Foley has interesting information from an anonymous informant about what we think might be a Windows Mobile 7 reference design.
It would be powered by a choice of TI, Qualcomm or NVIDIA SoC (system on a chip) with 256MB+ RAM, 1GB+ flash. Of course you need a high-end touch display that can deliver 800×480 pixels, a 3MP+ camera, GPS+aGPS, and array of sensors including accelerometer and WIFI.
The specifications are actually longer, but that’s the interesting bit. We told you that NVIDIA would not focus its internal development on Windows Mobile if there wasn’t something big, so this is consistent with that idea. Keep in mind that this is a rumor and that Microsoft could be defining the hardware baseline for Windows Mobile 7. We don’t think that Microsoft will actually sell a MS branded device. Head to ZDnet to read the details.
