Bright Side of News reports Microsoft's Windows Phone 7-based devices will be based on NVIDIA's Tegra SoC:
The successor of T-Mobile/Degner Sidekick platform is named Project Pink and even though there were rumors about a fallout between Zune and Project Pink teams, the reality is that Microsoft's Windows Phone 7-based devices will utilize hardware very similar to the one we've been seeing for months on the shelves around United States - inside Zune HD.
That's right - thanks to a twitter post from Mr. Roy Taylor, one of nVidia's leading Telecom executives - Microsoft Windows 7 Phones are powered by nVidia Tegra SoC. This is yet another victory for nVidia, who only missed out on Apple iPad contract by a narrow margin. Then again, teaming up with Microsoft is definitely a warming prospect for Graphzilla of Santa Clara, as the company is desperate to expand its business beyond the confinements of the graphics world.
