Windows Mobile 7 Hardware Specs

Mary-Jo Foley seems to been able to get her hands on the hardware specs for Windows Mobile 7 phones that are coming some time in 2010. What’s interesting is the reference to “WM7 Chassis  1 Specifications” which I presume means this is for the high end phone devices and would also presume means that a lower (cheaper) option for WM7 Chassis 2 Specification is also coming. That means that MS is not going with the one size fits all strategy (unlink apple) so consumers will have a choice of price and features.

Spec’s summary below – I have bolded the cool features
