Microsoft to Uncrate “Pink” Phones at April 12 Event

pretty-in-pink-revised Apple isn’t the only company holding an invitation-only event this month–Microsoft is as well.

Four days after Apple (AAPL) unveils the details of its forthcoming iPhone OS 4, Microsoft (MSFT) will take the wraps off its long-rumored “Pink” feature phones at a San Francisco media gathering with the cryptic title, “It’s Time to Share.”

News.com’s Ina Fried reports that Microsoft will uncrate two Pink phones, code-named Pure and Turtle, at the event, both destined for Verizon’s (VZ) network. The Sharp-manufactured devices, which feature touchscreens and keyboards, are expected to go on sale this spring.
