On June 6th at Computex Taipei 2012, Microsoft Steven Guggenhimer demoed Xbox Companion app using Samsung Taylor in his keynote.
Samsung Taylor isn’t commercially released device. It was distributed to developers before launch of Windows Phone 7 RTM in 2010.
You can see both Back button and Search button have old style icon like below.
As Joe Belfiore demoed Mango at MIX11, Microsoft tended to use “zero” generation phones before 1st generations. The primary reason is likely that it has unique USB feature to output screen image to VGA.
The another reason is flashing ROM image. Microsoft seems to distribute developing Windows Phone build as a ROM image in house and they are flasing it by themself. Old phones are useful to flash ROM images because of well matured tools.
Anyway I cannot understand why Steven used Taylor, because the demonstation just showed ordinally Windows Phone 7.5 feature and apps published on the Marketplace.
