    Does this mean Andromeda is dead or possibly pushed back beyond 2019?

    Pushed back maybe... but it would seem to me that if you accept that the dual screen form factor has use, you accept that it will be useful in different sizes. What's not clear to me is why a different OS would be required.

    Here is a comment from Mary Jo Foley on ZDNet.
    "Surface Chief Panos Panay told The Verge recently that a pocketable Surface was "his baby." But the company hasn't moved forward with its Andromeda device (and is unlikely to do so, from what my sources say)."

    If they are unlikely to move forward with the project then why does Andromeda keep popping up in settings screens and in codes?

    Wouldn't it just be an evolution of Andromeda?

    Centaurus means Centaurus is dead - and Andromeda is dead.
    If either of these made sense, Windows Phone would still make sense.

    Both of these new "Beyond the curve" devices will suffer the same fate (if they are ever released) as Windows Phone for the same reason that Windows Phone failed - the app gap.

    All the ridiculous speculation that Centaurus or Andromeda will succeed after we just wait a little longer for PWA to "really take off" or UWP to be successful is wishful thinking.

    Windows Phone would be more successful than either Centaurus or Andromeda if UWP was wildly successful. UWP is not wildly successful (and never will be).

    The normal "phone" form factor is WAY more popular than any dual screen or folding phone format ever will be. A successful Windows Phone would help Centaurus and Andromeda immensely.

    Not necessarily. If these devices can run PC apps they'd have a chance.

    So, is it better to give up than fight and try again to get success? I think this is not the mentality that a CEO has to have.

    Mobile Phone's and Computer's environment is suffering an evolution, and (although the computer itself is not going to be replaced) the path goes to converge into a mobile and "pocketable" devices with both cell and computer/Tablet function , and Microsoft has to be in this market, or it will have serious problems at the future.

    I don't know if Andromeda is coming or not, but anyway, I'm pettry sure that they show that having a mobile device is mandatary to survive, and they must do something.

    Microsoft has a history of failing the future. They killed Project Jupiter in 2004 which would have brought interoperable operating systems to satisfy the 2005 Congressional mandate for interoperable medical records. Instead, they cancelled it due to "license headaches" meaning they didn't want to pay for proprietary technologies. It cost them dearly. Steve Ballmer says killing Longhorn and the subsequent rewrite of Vista in 2006 is one of his greatest regrets. Satya Nadella will regret killing Sets as it is a gateway into the semantic web... which Microsoft will not participate in due to their confusion and poor direction. Engineers don't stop progress. Lawyers stop progress.
