Microsoft Outs 4 New Windows Phone 7 Mango Handsets

The recipe for making a Windows Phone 7 device is not as easy as making other phones, they require lots of processing power, RAM and graphics. That’s one of the reasons that you don’t find WP7 phones lying in bulk at any consumer electronic store. There aren’t many Windows Phone 7 devices available in the market yet and the operating system is still in it’s growing stage.

New Windows Phone 7 Mango devices

Microsoft recently announced the new Windows Phone 7 Mango Update which brings many new features to the mobile devices. Mango was titled as the next major update for Windows Phone 7 before it’s preview, but even now none of the devices have got any official Mango update. To get back in the OS wars, Microsoft has teamed up with Samsung, Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE to announce 4 new Windows Phone 7 Mango devices. These devices will be running on the latest update of Mango and will be available in the market pretty soon.

Samsung Windows Phone 7 Mango

At a Worldwide Partner Conference,  Steve Guggenheimer of Microsoft unveiled the 4 new phones, while the Samsung model was hidden in his pocket. It was rumored that Samsung will be launching a new Windows Phone 7 device and this looks like it. The phone is similar to the Galaxy S II and keeps the front-facing camera, a feature that wasn’t available in older WP7 phones. This could indicate that Microsoft is planning to launch a video calling service soon enough. Watch the video after the break to get a glimpse of all the new WP7 Mango phones, specially the one from Samsung.

Other phones that were also shown, such as the waterproof phone from Fujitsu clad in Pink for some reason. Also ZTE and Acer phones were shown. A Nokia phone running Windows Phone 7 was also leaked some time back, a very much Nokia N9 look alike. Windows Phone 7 Mango is supposed to be released to the public in September, so it’s likely that we’ll see these new phones during that time.
