Windows Phone 7 to have three form factors

Posted on Wednesday, February 24 2010 @ 14:54:32 CET by

ZD Net reports phones based on Windows Phone 7 will ship in three distinct form factors. Chassis 1 is aimed at big touch screen phones, while chassis 2 models will have sliding keyboards plus touch. Details about the third form factor are unknown, but it could be a candy bar chassis. The large touch screen Windows Phone 7 models will arrive in time for the holiday season, while the other models will follow later.
Chassis 1 is for PC makers developing “big touch screen” phones, the hosts said. These will be touch-only devices, with 1 GHz processor (hello, Snapdragon!) and a dedicated graphics processor, the Frankly Speaking guys said. These are the phones that will be out first at launch this holiday season.

Chassis 2-compliant phones will support real sliding keyboards plus touch, the podcasters claimed. They said these would be more Palm-Treo-like. There also will be Chassis 3 phones, about which the pair didn’t have any details. One of the hosts (I couldn’t tell which) said he expected Chassis 3 phones might be candy bar phones. The pair didn’t say when Chassis 2 and 3 phones might ship.
