Leaked photo confirms that Microsoft is removing 'Phone' from Windows Phone
With talk that Microsoft will be unifying Windows, a leaked photograph of the My Go GoPhone GF47W, shows a change in the insignia printed on the back of a Windows Phone handset. Instead of the words "Windows Phone", the back of the device says "Windows" which seems to confirm Microsoft's plans.

Actually, this change was already heralded by the decision to give HTC's new model the name HTC One (M8) for Windows, not Windows Phone. To top it off, last week we told you about a leaked confidential document that revealed Microsoft's intention to drop the Nokia name from its new handsets.

The picture of the phone was discovered on a microsite that was unlinked on the My Go web site. In addition, the picture is "stamped" CONFIDENTIAL - Internal Use Only. It looks like it is just a matter of time until Microsoft makes this official.
