Microsoft is Working on 'Pocketable' Surface Device


The emails also describe the product as the first in a "new and disruptive" category of devices set to bridge the gap between PCs and phones, reminding us of a statement by Satya Nadella from previous year. Codenamed Andromeda, the device is said to be foldable with dual displays, and would exist in the space between a phone and a laptop. It's meant to create a "new and disruptive" device category, as per the leaked email, and will combine "innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience".

To recap, Andromeda is the code name for an underground Microsoft project. Thurott had originally reported Microsoft's plans in the early times of this month.

ARM processors are being used in some prototypes, but Microsoft might settle with chips from Intel or Qualcomm. Insiders reveal that the company could pull the plug on the device at any stage like they did with the Surface Mini a few weeks before its release.

After the incident, Police and National Disaster Management Response Force (NDRF) rushed to the spot to rescue people. The 28-seater bus was carrying 59 passengers, police said, adding a probe will determine the reason of the accident.

Recent patent filings from Microsoft have also suggested that the company has been working on the device.

Even though Microsoft has maintained a pin drop silence on the Surface Phone, the company's Corporate Vice President of Devices, Panos Panay has accidentally teased the device on Twitter. According to Microsoft, the goal of this product is to "blur the boundaries between mobile and stationary computing".
