    I imagine we're more likely to see something that is like the always-on PC's that can fit in your pocket. It'd be nice if it had telephony, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Edit: As others have already said, they won't announce it at a mobile phone event, though.

    I may be one of the minorities when it comes to Windows Phone & Windows Mobile, but I'm still planning on waiting a long time, even several years, before moving to another phone. Windows Phone &
    Windows Mobile is a chicken - egg game, and I plan on doing what I can to make sure it doesn't go extinct

    We nearly every major app either not supporting Windows not supporting Windows and particularly not supporting smalls screens it seems there is no point to UWA and PWA is still a long way away. It would struggle for meaning at this point.. Furthet complicating things is many feel Microsoft has pulled away from consumers, particularly in the phone area. Many IT colleagues consider Windows a computer for staff only and mobile as Android or iOS now making a sell for corporate tougher. Microsoft would really have to do something truly groundbreaking, even more than the original surface, to get traction and that would likely require a dedicated launch event if it happened.

    There will never be a Surface phone. A pocketable Surface device with cellular connectivity will come Q1 2019. If it come earlier then great but Q4 2018 is about as early you can expect. Lets hope OEMs jump on and deliver some competing devices to drive the market.

    I don't see them releasing something that isn't ground breaking. They have had too many fails just to release another "phone" so this new device has to be good, innovative and create it's own niche. That does not guarantee success though, the market will decide that.

    You know what... Take your time Microsoft. Don't rush it. Do it right. And please, release a single screen device alongside the foldable phone.

    A big problem for MS is people not knowing they had a mobile OS in the first place, and people brand shopping. Most people do not talk about OS', but iPhone or Samsung. At least where I live. And there is iPhone chargers, and Samsung Chargers. Micro USB, what's that?

    If MS want to be successful they have to have OEM's on board. When MS themselves became the largest Windows Phone and mobile manufacturer, they took a huge chunk of a small market. Samsung, HTC, LG and others saw no point in competing with MS in a small market segment. However, If Samsung sold as many Windows devices as MS did, things might have turned out differently. Snap Chat still would have had a huge impact though.

    In the PC market things are different. They can sell lots of Surface devices, and still be outsold by their OEM's by a magnitude. If MS are indeed working on pocketable PC's with cellular functionality, they should be working with the larger OEM's as well. When they release their Surface concept, the OEM's should be tight on their *** with their own devices. And MS should make sure the OEM's sells more devices than themselves, at least until the device form factor gets momentum and developers gets onboard with app development for mobile form factors.

    I believe they will release a new device, but MWC 2018? Not so sure about that one.

    Why is this still being discussed? No one wants it. If it is not running Android or iOS, then developers won't write apps for it and it won't sell. How many reboots of phone operating systems does Microsoft have to figure out that nobody wants it. Even if they do showcase the phone, it will be discontinued after short time after no one purchases or uses it (aka Zune, Band, prior versions of phones, Kinect, and soon Cortana).

    No phone or device at MWC. No Surface Phone. Microsoft is out of the phone business. Microsoft will introduce a new mobile device this year, maybe before or during Build 2018.

    I think Microsoft will start rolling out surface phone with new SD CPU in third quarter of 2018 with windows 10 1809 OS that is fully ready for CShell and Continuum. Surface is included in the name of the device.

    No Surface phone.

    I expect them to push further into Android devices, and to extol their new "always connected" laptop (tablet?) devices. Especially now that they have carriers (Verizon & Sprint I believe).
    If you're right and they have Verizon and Sprint only, then they're doomed from the start. They're CDMA networks and the phone (device) would only work in the US. I just can't see that happening.

    Aside from some on this forum, no one actually cares anymore, they have burnt thier bridges with developers, fans and the community 3 too many times. Once bitten twice shy, they keep on biting. They can now bite my ***.

    Not going to happen in any way. They had the same problem as before. The lack of web apps and developers (i.e. young developers making the apps young people want - young people drive phone sales). Not only is windows mobile dead but Windows is dead too. Its just a matter of time for the desktop to be replaced by iOS and Chrome. Fortunately MS is lucky that Apple is taking their time with the evolution of iOS. Once APPL adds mouse support to iOS it will be over. Apple's A11 processors in the iPad are about as powerful as an intel i7 now for mobile. Unfortunately MS didn't begin creating their own chips for Mobile 15 years ago.

    I'm putting away $21 a month since the day I bought the 950XL. I have about $500 saved and am waiting for the Surface not-Phone with cshell and SIM. I should almost have enough by then.

    I'd grab a win-not-phone and throw away my Nexus as well, tbh.
    Nothing's new in smart phone space nowadays. I don't install anything new except a few games and I'd rather play / continue playing some XPA indie games with gamepad support.

    Prob the end of 2018, not MWC 2018.

    At $21 a month, you should have $Several Thousand saved by the time the Surface not-Phone is released.

    In short "Never", dispite what people think might happen it won't. The patents are registered for licence purposes. So Microsoft can sit back and do nothing and make money on IP. Pretty much the same as they do now with other phone based tech.

    Microsoft are very adept as taking something really good and stuffing it right up. The have leard from that and licked their wounds and are now moving on with that firmly in mind.

    Stev Ballmer was an ***** for some of the stuff he did. Satya would much rather prefer being remembered for doing nothing that for doing something stupid. There will be no more risk taking at Microsoft. Microsoft are saying nothing because thet have nothing.

    If a new "windows phone" come out of Microsoft anytime soon I will eat my hat.
