Gizmodo reports that it got its hands on some marketing materials for the upcoming launch of what it believes to be the Microsoft "Pink" device, on Verizon's network. Details yet to be confirmed include the final name, since "Pink" is assumed to be the code name. Gizmodo says the materials make the phone look distinct from devices running Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7 Series. "It's suggested that the (Pink) platform has apps of some sort," writes Gizmodo's John Herrman in the post. "For a phone like this to share apps with Windows Phone 7 is pretty much impossible—the minimum hardware requirement for a Windows Phone look out of reach for this little black lump—so this one's a big question mark. Is it another SDK? Or closed app development like we've seen on the Zune HD? Web apps?" Gizmodo has now posted some photos taken of the Pure, which is also said to be coming to Verizon. The photos, of course, are of the "blurry" kind. The interface has a Windows Phone 7 feel to it, but is not the Windows Phone 7 that we're accustomed to. Could there be another Windows Phone 7 Series version that we don't know about?
