Ultra books cost well over $1000, so how is this to expensive❔ Remember that Surface Pro is a different level of tablet compared to what Android tablets, and iPads are capable of...

Microsoft surface phone release date
It was six months ago when we first heard that a new flagship Lumia smartphone, codenamed McLaren, was being developed. Little was revealed about it at the time, but the rumor mill was quick to fill in some of the blanks for us over the weeks that followed. The mysterious Windows and was allegedly going to feature unique "3D Touch" technology for Kinect-like user interaction. Sure enough, a wave of excitement arose among Lumia loyalists and gadget aficionados alike.In July, however, Microsoft reportedly killed the 3D Touch-capable McLaren smartphone, among other projects it took control over after acquiring Nokia's mobile division. No further rumors supporting the possibility of a Lumia 1020 successor ever materializing came after that point. Until several weeks ago, when a massive leak appeared right out of the blue and exposed a prototype Lumia handset. Although the phone didn't appear to support any unusual interaction methods, it was rumored to be the actual McLaren … [Read more...] about Nokia Lumia 1030 (aka McLaren) rumor round-up: specs, features, release date, and all we know so far
While Microsoft is still working on Lumia branded handsets, the company is rumored to be looking at expanding the popularity of its Surface brand by developing a Microsoft Surface Phone. It's quite a turnaround from a marketing standpoint considering that just before the Surface Pro 3 became a rousing success, the Microsoft Surface brand was not connecting with tablet buyers.The Microsoft Surface handset is reportedly in the prototype stage and is known as the "Juggernaut Alpha." That happens to be a code name that dates back to 2012, in reference to an earlier Surface phone being developed by Microsoft. According to a report published today, the new Surface phone is being scheduled for an early 2016 release, as Microsoft is still working on the unannounced Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL.The Microsoft Surface phone is rumored to feature a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.5-inch Clearback AMOLED display, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution.

The website for HTML5TEST, a benchmark used to test browsers, reveals that Microsoft has been prepping the Surface Phone. The browser test was on version 12 of Edge, the new name that Microsoft has given its browser. The version of Windows 10 Mobile employed on the phone was 10240, an older pre-release version of the platform. The dated version of the Edge browser used, along with the older version of the OS, would indicate that Microsoft has been working on the Surface Phone for some time.Back in August, we told you that the Surface Phone will be released early next year with a 5.5-inch Clearback AMOLED display, carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. One part of the rumor that seems strange is that an Intel Atom X3 SoC will reportedly be under the hood. This chip previously has been announced for entry-level handsets, not to drive high-end models with a QHD display.Microsoft decided to make the Lumia 950 an AT&T exclusive, despite requests from the other major U.S. carriers to offer … [Read more...] about Edge browser on the Surface Phone is benchmarked by HTML5TEST?
At Build 2017, Microsoft’s annual developer conference, Microsoft was busy announcing a bunch of new, forward-thinking developments including new updates to Windows 10 and their cloud computing platform. Perhaps the most exciting underlying theme was that Microsoft wants to make better software that works really well between devices, and they did not only mean working well between Windows PCs, but between all your devices, iOS and Android included.Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO, envisions a future in which people own on average six devices. He knows that not all of these devices will be Windows based, but he wants to make sure that users of Microsoft services can have the best experience across them all, no matter what device or OS they choose to use.Turning to the present, we are hearing rumors that there may be a ‘Surface Phone’ in the works. As of October 2017, Microsoft decided to stop feature development for Windows 10 Mobile, so it would make sense that the device … [Read more...] about Do we already know what a Surface Phone would look like?
