    Remember Project Pink? Whatever Microsoft’s secret hardware initiative was? Well, it’s real and it’s coming to Verizon. You’ll see the Turtle, shown here, first, and it will be sort of a Sidekick that won’t run Windows Phone.

    Microsoft's Project Pink Might Be Dead In The Water

    To say we were unimpressed with the first leaked shots to come out of Microsofts “Project Pink” would be a bit of an understatement.
