Microsoft and Verizon set to announce project Pink on Monday?

Internal documentation about an upcoming Verizon phone with strong ties to social media has been leaked.  Phandroid.com believes that the phone may be the HTC Legend because of all the leaks that have been occurring with regards to the device, but, it seems more plausible that it may be related to Microsoft’s project Pink.

While the Legend does sound like a possible outcome, it’s hard to ignore Microsoft’s special event that’s also occurring on the same day. Also, the Verizon documentation talks about how the device will be based around sharing, social media, and that it’s unique to Verizon; previous rumors had suggested that project Pink would be a phone tied closely with social media platforms.  This leak ties into previous information that Neowin reported on earlier this week.

Fortunately, the announcement will be made in approximately seventy-two hours but the exact time and location are not yet known.  Monday will be a big day from both Microsoft and Verizon, the only question remains are they announcing the same product?

other sites are also reporting this, and the last i heard about this was that it might not even have anything to do with the microsoft pink stuff:

@slundberg01 offers another theory: "The journey on Monday for Verizon is NFL mobile. It releases Monday. There will be new phones but that's not Monday. that's why if you look at that flyer it was a football thrown through the paper."

Sounds more reasonable.

It's no coincidence that both Verizon and Microsoft are using the same "It’s time to share" tagline for the event, and we have known for over a month that Verizon are getting Project Pink devices - http://www.neowin.net/news/mic...confirmed-coming-to-verizon

Also, what's NFL Mobile got to do with "sharing" and being "social"? If they were going to have a launch event for that wouldn't it be a little bit nearer to the NFL Draft date, bearing in mind that it is currently no secret that they have the rights - http://news.vzw.com/news/2010/03/pr2010-03-03d.html
