Conflipper, Windows Mobile driver hacker extraordinaire, has managed to get his hands on the firmware and the ‘Image updater’ for the Microsoft Pure phone.
Disassembling the software revealed quite a bit about the enigmatic series of devices.
Revealed was that:
- ‘Turtle’ = GSM version; ‘Pride’ = CDMA
- ‘Pure’ = GSM version; ‘Lion’ = CDMA
- ‘Turtle’ = 320×240 resolution
- ‘Pure’ = 480×320 resolution
- Strong connection to Nvidia Tegra
- Looks to be CE6
- References to ‘PMX’ (â€œPremium Mobile Experiencesâ€) throughout
He also concluded with "With reference to Silverlight and Visualizer feeds with a heavy background to social networking I don’t think these phone are all that "dumb".
As leaked last week, we did not see anything involving Microsoftâ€™s Sidekick replacement at Mobile World Congress, suggesting we would need to wait till March for more information and confirmation.
