Default Rumored Pink Phone "Turtle" Filed at FCC


Image Source: FCC Filing

Does this look familiar to you? Well it should:


Image Source: Gizmodo

Today, Sharp, who manufactured the Sidekick for Danger, filed with the FCC for a "CDMA Slide Phone with WLAN & BT," a device that looks remarkably like the images that Gizmodo acquired of the Turtle, one of the rumored Pink phones. Actual pictures, external and internal, of the phone that were filed with are confidential and will remain so until March 29th.

This almost confirms the rumors of Pink devices, as did the recent discoveries by Long Zheng and our own itsnotabigtruck of Pink Phone references in the updated 4.2 Zune software. Whether this means that Pink Phones will be released at the upcoming Mobile World Congress is unknown. Like I've said before, we'll just have to wait and see.

Sharp has yet to file for the second rumored device, Pure, pictures of which were also leaked by Gizmodo.

Interesting, can't wait for the official announcement. If they have cross platform app support (zune HD to project pink and vice versa) it could be a real help to the Zunes app line up.

Wow, good find. But it looks ugly in inho. Although the 2nd one looks better.

Boo CDMA & crappy design. Hopefully the Pure is GSM with AT&T 3G freqs and a better keyboard than the render has. Then maybe I'll buy one. Maybe.

Those phones are hideous. But they look like they'd be comfortable. Like a gaming device. I wouldnt buy one though, being the first of their kind is their flaw. Because after a year of being out they'd have fixed the bad things from it and the second one will be amazing.

Great find and article! Never thought to look up this device again - if Turtle is real - the wider "Pure" device must be too! Guess these are the first Windows Phone "with Zune" devices. When the keyboard is retracted it will be a nice palm sized device it seems - the keyboard is good news for those who are unable to use an onscreen keyboard.
Hopefully Silverlight Mobile will make an appearance too!

iFanboy: What's that phone?

MS Fanboy: It's the "Turtle" phone!

iFanboy: Bwahahaha!!! My iPhone has a normal name! And it doesn't look ugly!

Other MS Fanboy: *smacks iFanboy upside the head with his sweet looking "Pure" phone*
Oh no!
Your dead.
Is there an app for that?
