Will Microsoft's Surface Phone become a reality?

Microsoft Bringing the Movies & TV Service to iOS and Android Microsoft Fans Sign Petitions To Save Andromeda Dual Screen Surface Device
Katie Ramirez | 09 July, 2018, 20:21

Although the company hasn't confirmed anything or made an official announcement yet; the Surface chief Panos Panay recently teased it with a clever tweet.

Are you wanting Microsoft to re-enter the mobile space with the highly-anticipated Surface Phone, or do you think it's right that they postpone the project and get it right, or cancel it altogether?

While we've had dual-screen devices and two-in-one tablets that act as a laptop, Andromeda could perhaps break new ground with its proposed ability to act as a smartphone, tablet and potential mini-PC. In the petition page, Zachary claims that money is power and if a lot of people want a Surface phone like the ones in the leaks, then Microsoft will be forced into action as everyone knows they wouldn't be able to give a reason on why not to go for it to their investors, as its too much of a money opportunity to miss.

For the past couple of years, rumors have been floating around about Microsoft working on a dual-screen pocketable device codenamed "Andromeda" - dubbed "Surface Phone" by many. "I myself wouldn't mind paying between $799-$999 (base figures, I would be willing to pay more if the phone is truly groundbreaking when it comes out)", concludes Hinski. But a recent report claiming the tech giant has already abandoned the project, also dubbed Andromeda, pretty much hosed down all expectations.

In a world where users expect their apps, data, and purchases to travel with them from their computer to their mobile devices, it is surprising that it took so long for Microsoft to start releasing their apps on other platforms.

The nature of the petition itself is rather interesting. Over 1800 signatures were collected within 22 hours of the petition page going live.

Despite Mary Jo Foley's report of Microsoft's portable Surface "Andromeda" device never seeing the light of day, fans are not giving up hope and have set up a new petition to drive their interest home to Redmond.
