Premier aperçu des prérequis matériels de WM7

Les pré-requis techniques pour Windows Mobile 7 sont apparus récemment. Comme vous pouvez le voir, les spécifications de ce "chassis 1" sont extrêmement intéressantes :

On notera tout particulièrement l'accélération graphique, la quantité de RAM et de ROM demandée, la taille d'affichage minimale (800*480 !), le multi-touch, et les périphériques (GPS, boussole, capteur de lumière, USB2...).

Cette plateforme s'annonce vraiment alléchante !
