Chinese daily Digitimes reported on Thursday that Microsoft will bring the second batch of Windows Phone 7 smartphones to the Mobile World Congress show in February of next year in Barcelona. Leading the rumors is the ASUS E600. The E600 is still a bit of a mystery with very little detail being leaked on the companies first Windows Phone 7 device. It is rumored to be heading to AT&T and dispels any rumors that ASUS was shying away from Windows Phone 7. The E600 will most likely sport a four-inch touchscreen with at least a 480×800 resolution, a five-megapixel camera with an LED flash and a 1,300mAh battery.
The Chinese-edition of Windows Phone 7 (WP7) should be present on the local market mainly on handsets released by the aforementioned China-based mobile device makers. These won’t be the only companies to join the Windows Phone 7 bandwagon during the next year, it seems. While the currently available Windows Phone 7 handsets came from companies like HTC, LG, Samsung or Dell, mobile phone makers like Asus, ZTE and others would also come up with their own devices based on Microsoft’s new mobile OS.
