Microsoft responds to recent Windows Mobile phone rumors
      04/29/09 02:56 PM

With all the rumors flying about Microsoft making phones, project pink, liaisons with Verizon and the never-ending tales of Zune phones, Microsoft spokesperson John Starkweather gave us the the real deal.

Here's what Mr. Starkweather told us, verbatim:

"1) Microsoft is not going into the phone hardware business.
2) Microsoft is not building a Zune-specific phone.
3) We're deepening our relationships with our hardware partners in order to create even better performing phones that are competitively priced, have the features people want, that are easy-to-use and just downright lustworthy. The upcoming availability of Windows Mobile 6.5 software will enable our OEM partners to build even more compelling devices in a wide-range of form factors for customers around the world."

While it's fun to speculate, it seems like there's nothing to see here and it's time to move on, according to Microsoft.
