Microsoft's mystery event is a mystery no more.
A source confirms I was on target with my prediction that the event will herald the introduction of Microsoft's long-awaited new phones for the always-connected crowd. The devices, code-named Pure and Turtle, are both slider phones, each with a touch screen and keyboard, a source told CNET. In the U.S., the devices will run on Verizon Wireless' network and go on sale within the month following the event.
Microsoft's invitation for the April 12 event was fairly nondescript, noting only that "It's time to share."
