So, what's it like inside of a 55 foot tall Windows Phone? [Video]

It may be a bit too big to fit in your pocket, but it's not too big for Microsoft to make look awesome. The 55 foot tall Windows Phone on display at the Microsoft event in Herald Square today is more than just a hand-full: it's taking an entire team of engineers and crew members to manage the Live Tiles, rotate out those tiles for live performances, and keep the whole thing looking beautiful during the festivities and presentations going on. 

Paul Miller from The Verge was able to get a nice tour of the massive device, and in the video above we get a closer look at what goes into making a huge Windows Phone. It's unlikely that we'll actually see this type of Mango device arrive on store shelves in the future; but hey, anything can happen. If the close-up look of the structure isn't enough, be sure to check out this time-lapse video of its construction, too. It will be interesting to see if any of you try to put one up in your front yard to show off in front of the neighbors.

They FINALLY make a big screen WP but it's TOO THICK! I can't carry a THICK phone like that around!

jimski says:

The Stay Puff Marshmallow Man could use that phone.

That is so totally sweet! I can't believe Microsoft is actually going for it. If they could get a couple of top-tier acts to play the main stage it would be a HUGE win for them.

willdoors says:

so that's how our phones are inside :) I want to open my phone :D

Bhawk1990 says:

Yeah, I didn't know it either that tiny people are inside my phone and they control my live titles. Microsoft should make an ad for it: "The first phone with people INSIDE!" :D

hey guys bad news. At the location where I work at, phones are still not selling not selling. Focus s needs to be $99 if it wants to compete. I don't think sales are going to pick up at all.

birdman_38 says:

Windows Phones should range from $1 to $99. "No phone over $99!"

lippidp says:

Absolutely. It has to cost less than the iPhone or it will fail. The Focus Flash and Radar will probably do OK. Focus S cannot compete with iPhone at the same price.

"any of you try to put one up in your front yard to show off in front of the neighbors."That sounds like a possibility for a Griswald family frontyard Christmas idea...Techiedude
