Windows Phone 7 Series Offical Specs Revealed

The minimum specs have been revealed for Windows Phone 7 Series devices including the memory, processor and graphical requirements that all hardware running the operating system will have to adhere to.

The list starts off with the screen which needs to be multi-touch supporting at least four contact points. Sensors that have to be included are A-GPS, Accelerometer, Compass, Light and Proximity. The camera on the back of the device has to be capable of at least 5 megapixels and can include higher resolution sensors.

Memory wise the device needs to have just 256MB including an 8GB flash or more. The GPU needs to be capable of DirectX9 acceleration.

The CPU needs to be an ARMv7 Cortex/Scorpion or better and the screen sizes specifically mentioned need to be either 480×800 or 480×320 pixels. It is unclear if larger and higher resolution screens can also be used.

A keyboard is optional as we have seen earlier today on the Samsung and Asus devices. Three hardware buttons must also be included on the face of the device and be fixed (ie, not soft keys).

Other information indicates that memory cards cannot be used, or if they are they must not be accessible by the end user. Perhaps for reasons of copying files etc… illegally… who knows on this one?
