Top secret Microsoft phone thing!

19 July 2011

Bitterwallet - Microsoft logoBring! 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?

    I thought it said 'windows phone DIVERSION". As in, to divert attention away from how much fail there was in their previous devices.

    Perhaps it's a way of using up all the parts from those unsold Zunes.

    Nope, cos it will be shit. And the problem that MS has within the phone market (unlike the PC market as was, and to an extent as-is), is there are already several players who are very much not shit.

    "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)" Is that what it appears to you? Because last time I checked they did release a number of phones to get them back into the competition, it's called windows phone 7.

What do you think?
