Microsoft and Apple have never really admired each other and therefore the competitive intentions are always evident. This time around it is Microsoft which is in the mood to challenge the might of the iPhone with a couple of releases slated for next year. Both phones, namely the Turtle and Pure are being developed under the project name ‘Pink’ and it will be Sharp that will assist Microsoft throughout the development. Indeed, both the phones will be co-branded as Microsoft+Sharp products. The phone codenamed Turtle bears semblance to the Motorola QA1. Pure is a more traditional phone which adores the candy bar styling and both these phones are expected to be released at the CES in January 2010. Rumor has it that the Pure will be sold by Verizon but then there is no source which confirms the speculation.
