Windows Phone Mango: Acer M310 and Asus in the wild

During Microsoft WPC in Los Angeles last month I was sitting just metres away from the new Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) handsets that were briefly flashed up on the video screen. Unfortunately that was about as near as anyone came to seeing them in person.

At Tech Ed in Auckland this week that story changes for the better. (Removed: Due to a miscommunication we have agreed to remove the specific details of the new Windows Phone handsets at this time)

The Asus phone is tidy looking handset with a matt black finish and it appears to be an engineering sample with non-final code on it. But the Acer M310 looks final.

Interesting this is the second TechEd event in Auckland where Microsoft have made public new Windows Phone information. The previous instance was in 2009 when it was shared in a small session that Microsoft had a team of 1000+ working on Windows Phone 7 (then referred to as Windows Mobile 7). I broke that story on my blog at Geekzone.

Note: Please check back again soon when I hope to be able to publish more about this story and related Windows Phone 7 news.

Is the Windows Phone from Asus - the Asus E600 that was engineering sample from last year or a totally different device?

I would assume you have had to take images down, but a great find, hope they trot the devices out in AU TechEd as well!
