Point to a Windows phone by Nokia or rather "Sea Ray", but who knows.
The mango preview is looking sweet and windows phone 7 has really improved. http://www.engadget.com/201... I am glad that MS has a hand in Nokias mobile division and cant wait to see what they do with Windows phone 7 on the Nokia.
Nokia makes some of the best hardware I have seen, it's a shame their software sucks balls and I got rid of my Nokia 5800 to get a HTC HD7. HTC hardware isn't durable like Nokia... but the designs are pretty good. The N8 looks fabulous and I can't wait to see a Nokia WP7 phone especially if it is geared towards gamers. Well, as long as it doesn't add bulk and is well supported.
Doubt ms would make a dedicated handheld.
they only supply the OS. It is the handset makers to decide how and what the unit will do. WP7 has the potential to be a portable gaming OS but that kind of commitment is risky when you look at the iphone and various android phones. To bad MS hasnt opened up the use of WP7 to tablet makers. Then again, that is why they have Windows 7 in the first place. If anything, WP7 would be the backbone of a nokia portable like sony did with the ericson/ps phone. No more taco talking.
Its not MS but Nokia. MS will have a hand on it being implementing Xbox live or just getting games like Halo and Gears on it. If you have followed the mobile phone news lately you will see that MS and Nokia are like Starsky and Hutch - I would not be surprised if MS buys Nokia some time soon.
lmao! A first party company that can count how many AAA titles they every made on one hand wants to make a handheld with one of the most generic phone manufacturers of the past? I would hate to be the one that had to do any P.R. marketing for this unholy abomination.
You are a joke and I won't even bother responding to what you said.
But you just did.
@Urrakia43, It's nice to see you trying to be smart but tbh I didn't respond to what he said.. I didn't answer what he said there...
Well it maybe a Win Phone 7 phone that has physical controls like the Xperia play
It's the N-Gage 2!
Its the N-Gage 2 with windows 7.
The improved Windows 7 with 500 new features added. "Make no mistake, Microsoft isn't playing coy in the smartphone market any longer. The folks in Redmond are making a significant jump forward in the mobile arena, announcing that the upcoming version of Windows Phone, codenamed "Mango," will be heading to a device near you in time for the holidays. As its competitors have raised the bar of expectations to a much higher level, Microsoft followed suit by adding at least 500 features to its mobile investment, which the company hopes will plug all of the gaping holes the first two versions left open"
Not happening. If there was a handheld (quite a big launch!) there would be a press conference. Sure WinMo gaming + Nokia might turn out very good, but not a new handheld.
If they do its most likely dead. Nintendo and Sony have more experience then Microsoft in handhelds. They would eat them alive.
If I get a RROD on a handheld, I'm probably going to just throw it against a wall.
If they did make a handheld it would be pretty sweet. XBL on a handheld, with integration like party chat available on it, Windows 7 phone already gives you achievements, it could all work well together. Plus, imagine Gears, Halo and COD on a Microsoft handheld? It'd be done right.
Wouldn't be dead on arrival like the 3DS, and PSV or will the media/fanboys jump on M$ johnson like they always do? Im just asking because it would be extremely hypocritical of them and all the other handheld hating fools out there.
i thought ms would announce a handheld to make use of the transfaring thing kojima san has been working on, during his announcment he said ps3 uses it but he didnt say the xbox doesnt, if ya know what i mean. Also that transfaring is a sweet gizmo you never need to wait till you get back to continue a game just take it with ya. Damn you kojima san, ill never get the gaming monkey off my back now.
I don't see me or Nokia trying to get into the handheld market with Nintendo and Sony as they are pushing windows phone at the moment as they want to cut into apple and androids market shares. Although Apple and Android have a big lead over them windows phone has sone things in its locker that the other two don't have. I have had a HD7 since Wp7 was released and although its a new is and did not offer quite as much as android when it came out the device fit into my life better than any other mobile device has before for what it offered. I have had iPhone and android users play with my phone and say when they are due an upgrade they will look at wp7. Ms know its going to be a slow process to get its name out there in front of android and apple but with mango and the pushing power me has I see it being up there with them. But I don't see a portable console from them until next gen of portable machines are out.
nokia phones are over priced garbage microsoft should go with samsung or somebody better.
