    Check it out:
    Timeline Photos | Facebook

    Now before you say, "that's just a dummy phone", Microsoft doesn't use dummy phones for their promo pieces.

    Here's July 4th:
    Facebook

    Bram Stoker's B'day:
    Windows Phone's Photos | Facebook

    Halloween:
    Windows Phone's Photos | Facebook

    Baseball:
    Windows Phone's Photos | Facebook


    I could go on. The point is, Microsoft doesn't use generic phones for their Facebook promos, and if they do I'm hard pressed to find them.

    Now look at the device itself:
    Hard lines, metallic case, and the buttons match the buttons on the Surface. And if this is the Surface phone, I want it. I own a Surface, the build quality is fantastic, and it feels awesome to hold, probably the best feeling case of any tablet I've ever held. So I'd take the phone to match.
    This is probably wishful thinking, but anyway. Thoughts?

    EDIT: For those that don't want to click the link, here's the picture of the phone in question:

    Do you have proof of that? It really doesn't look like a generic phone...

    Actually it looks like my Zune HD. Back when Jessica and Matt were doing the, what was it, Zune Insiders podcast? There were questions raised about a Zune phone right before WP7 launched. Maybe they realized the Zune HD form-factor would be a new addition to their phone line-up. I mean you can only design a rectangle so may ways before they start looking the same. This one definately shows a difference.
