    Samsung & huawei seem to be on the verge of revealing their devices this year with google backing them on the software front, and based on rumors, apple is due to follow next year. Microsoft came in late with its last efforts. Am just wondering if we're gonna see microsoft repeat history here and re-enter after IOS and android dominate that category and give its fans more of that peri-microsft stress disorder?

    What makes anyone think that Microsoft is going to release a Foldable phone. Despite all the Rumours, Microsoft has clearly stated that Windows Mobile is dead, and no longer supported. So a Microsoft hardware mobile device, could only be Android based, and what is the business driver for that ?

    Microsoft, if anything, will most likely release a portable foldable laptop-type device. I doubt it will have telephony capabilities.

    MS won't come late to the foldable phone category, they will never enter to that competition. Probably they will make some great prototypes for foldable devices and then it will get cancelled and never heard again.

    Microsoft Android based? Of course not, in fact, the rumors point to software developement (Andrómeda's code found), we don't know too much about hardware. Windows hardware with Android software has no sense.

    I think MS being at MWC will be Hololens related, hopefully they will surprise us with something.

    When is the Mobile World C exactly? It started few days ago, don't? It would be great to have this surprise.

    MWC appears to be late February.

    If I were a gambling man, I'd wager 1 internets that MS won't release a phone/pocketable device.

    I think with Microsoft's continued push for eSIMS and LTE devices, they will release a foldable device with phone capabilities. However, it won't be a traditional smartphone and will instead focus more on productivity. At least for now, until there's a major shift in technology, the "phone" days of Microsoft are over.

    I am glad for this, I don't think I was ever really wanting a "Smartphone" the name implies that the users doesn't have to think. What I really have been wanting all along is a computer that has the ability to make phone calls and text as computers should have been able to all along...

    I never wanted to give up thinking for myself...

    It will be nice if MS announces something related to Andromeda. Unfortunately though, it may just be more Hololens.
