    Default Hardware Specs for Windows Phone 7 Series


    Consistent set of Hardware capabilities is now defined by Microsoft for the Windows Phone 7 devices. And Microsoft is very proactive in defining these hardware specifications unlike earlier for Windows Mobiles where it was flexible. It has set kind of standards such as, the front of the phone will have a multitouch display with 3 buttons generally positioned below the display, namely – Back, Start and Search. So I think the Start button of Windows Phones will be as famous as that of the Windows OS.
    During the MIX10 , Joe Belfiore in this video Changing our Game – an Introduction to Windows Phone 7 Series has shown the required hardware specifications for the Windows Phone 7 series devices.

    As you cans see from the above pic , all Windows Phone 7 devices will have -

    • Symmetric multi-touch of Capacitive type with at least 4 or more contact points.
    • Sensors – A GPS, Accelerometer, Compass and rest of sensors.
    • Camera with 5 megapixel or more , flash and a camera button

    As Microsoft at MIX 2010 uses the model of samsung and other companies existing phone models to demo the Windows phone 7 series....It seems that the current hardware configurations of the phones are enough to run the new phone OS....
