Rumor: Microsoft to Unveil Nine Windows Phones Tomorrow

While all of the talk about Microsoft’s event tomorrow in New York City might be about Windows Phone 7.5 and the supposed 500 new features coming along with it, the company might also be planning a big hardware unveil with WMPowerUser reporting that Redmond might unveil as many as nine Windows Phone 7 devices at tomorrow’s event.

Samsung will apparently be responsible for four of the nine devices, some of which are said to be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II, with the others coming from HTC (2), Acer (2), and Dell (1). And while the devices might be announced tomorrow, it could take awhile for some if not most of them to actually get released onto shelves.

In fact, it appears that Microsoft might be launching most of them at some point later this year, just in time for the holiday season.  No other details, including the juicer stuff like names and release dates, are known at this time.

In addition to the possibility of nine Windows Phone 7 handsets tomorrow, we will also see what should be a complete unveiling of the Mango update for Windows Phone 7, something Microsoft is going to be calling Windows Phone 7.5.

    I’m really anxious to hear what’s coming. 500 features is a lot, and even if most of those are minor improvements and “small” features (like custom ringtones) and a few big ones (like improved landscape support), then they may finally start catching on with people… well, as long as the marketing is effective and the phone selection is decent.

      So I guess decent is anywhere in between Apple (1) and Android (585937926467849672346975346).

    The web-based Marketplace will
    let its users select and buy any of those 17,000 apps available on its platform
    on a web browser and can be transferred to their Window phone over the air. The
    option of using SMS in case of non availability of the web marketplace service
    is a smart move from Microsoft thus enabling its users to turn on the
    broadcasted service before even the software is downloaded and installed. Also
    the company expecting the users to install the apps in the background is fair
    enough. Another milestone set by the PC giant and also a challenge for the
    androids is the Multitasking feature on the Mango OS. The prime focus of Mango
    being the is also something to look out for enhanced cloud integration and
    better platform tools for developers is a noteworthy highlight.
