We love hype, and it doesn’t come bigger than this job description from the Windows Phone 7 team, asking for a software tester for a project that appears to be on the fast track, being set to start building in one months time.

The supposedly top secret project is apparently set to disrupt the market, and appears to have something to do with the government and security clearance, just deepening the mystery.

While the post is ripe for speculation, my first thought is a secure IM client like Blackberry, suitable for government use.  Please let us know if any of our readers can suggest more outlandish possibilities.
