Top secret Microsoft phone thing!
Bring! Bring! Or should that be 'Bing! Bing!'? No. That'd be a rubbish joke. Anyway, Microsoft are working on a really secret new project in their Windows Phone division, according to a job description that they posted over the weekend.
The spec was for a software development engineer in test, gives few hints about the project which is invariably not going to take off at all because no-one really wants a Bill Gates Phone!
Anyway, the description said:
"We are a team working on a top secret project inside the Windows Phone division. Our mission...GO BIG! DISRUPT THE MARKET!"
Jesus. Wearisome adspeak. It goes on to say that the project involves the first version of a new feature set and...
"We can't give you many details on this, but I can assure you we have a passionate group of engineers charged and ready to take on the challenge"
It appears that Microsoft are developing a phone that they'll be hoping gets them back into competition, as they lag behind Google, Apple and RIM (who make Blackberry).
Should they bother?
