Windows Phone 7: New Samsung Slate is a Microsoft hack of i8910HD phone

By Alan Ng - Mar 17, 2010

Some interesting news to bring you now, as it has been revealed that the ‘Samsung Slate’ – previously thought to be the second Windows Phone 7 handset, isn’t an official product from Samsung at all.

According to this report from Pocket-Lint, the handset that Microsoft showed at MIX10 this week, is actually a Samsung i8910HD, which has been modified by Microsoft themselves, to which they called it the ‘Slate’.

It’s all a bit confusing, dont you think? Here is what an official spokesperson from Samsung said: “The launch was from Microsoft, not Samsung, and they used the i8910HD to demo Windows 7.”

Microsoft are yet to comment on this, we will keep you updated when we know more. Give us your reaction to the news.
