As pointed out by Engadget, XDA-Developers has posted a chunk of code from a Windows Phone 7 ROM leak, which made its way to the Internet over the weekend. The phone is manufactured by HTC and will have specs, the likes of which have yet to be sold in today's smartphone market. The phone is said to be called "Mondrian" and was referenced within the leaked code. According to what was found in the ROM, the device is expected to have the following specs:
- 1.3 GHz Scorpion processor (Snapdragon chipset)
- Both CDMA and GSM 3G support
- 4.3" screen WVGA (480x800)
- Virtual only keyboard
- Digital compass
Keep in mind that none of this information is rock solid proof that the Mondrian will be the powerhouse stated above. However, the evidence is sure piling up. Should this device be as it says, it could finally mark the age where a single phone has the ability to run on any carrier without the need to create multiple hardware versions. This sort of hardware could be the very thing that keeps Microsoft alive in the smartphone game. The Mondrian would basically be a superpowered HD2 running Windows Phone 7. Such a device is sure to excite the Windows Mobile community.
