    I think they are likely to reveal more about cloud at the education conference next month. But as you say it is interesting that RS3 maybe around the same time as arm becomes available ������
    I figured out MS big plan today. Its a good plan.

    I think they'll release windows cloud, windows on ARM. and Cortana bot intergration this year and demo not some high end business hardware, but some tight, slim, long battery life hybrid 2 in 1s w/ stylus and folding dock for affordable prices. Windows surface -for the everyday folks.

    I'm sure they'll keep the surface pro line and release one of those too, but probably add a new type to the line, surface something else, as well as the cloudbook. Typically Chinese brands have used "plus" in place of "pro" for the budget model. Not sure what MS will do. Maybe just "surface". And that would explain the conflicting rumours of surface with intel versus arm. They'll do both.

    It may come with keyboard and stylus separate, to keep everything as cheap as imaginable. But the point of all these releases on ARM this year (cloudbook, windows on arm) - All 4g, all the time - all affordable, competitive with android budget devices. Right in the centre of mobile computing growth that they can reasonably win at.

    That's how they can make UWP's competitive too and get back into phones. If they make a big splash in tablets = more developers, more big app support.

    They'll also release their smart home device soon. But not before intergration is done. They want their device to be smarter. They want Cortana to be able to do more, before they show it off.

    Yeah if you look under the education collection at the bottom too, there is quite a plethora of educational apps. No app gap for education so far as I can tell. Could be they have been working with devs on that for awhile.

    And those high end ones like earth3d and anatomy are graphically lovely. Plenty on offer there I think for the upcoming early may cloud announcement, to entice US schools back into the real workhorse OS of the world! (And give the rest of the world some great budget devices to chew on)

    Kinda makes me think that "windows cloud' isn't far off, that they have already themed the store.....

    I know its just a rumor, and I doubt I would buy it, but that would be cool if it happened.

    Hopefully some of their efforts are going to start coming together and people will see MS has a viable plan.

    It actually doesn't sound too far fetched especially if they are more buddy buddy these days. These days, if Samsung does it, people notice.

    Would welcome a same hardware, different OS comparison situation!

    It would make a great WC article :P

    Yeah, it doesn't seem implausible. MS sells the S8 in their store, and they helped Samsung with DeX. Could be a tit for tat situation.

    Is it not also kind of interesting that the S8 has a snapdragon 835 - the processor that runs windows on arm? - ie even if it didn't run WOA on release, it would be fully capable of doing so later.

    I'd actually love to be a fly on the wall in the MS and Samsung meetings. I bet they talk about all kinds of crazy stuff, in terms of future planning.

    Man, and all those who jumped ship for the Android variant would be kicking themselves. Though Samsung is happy to take their money too, yet they would also clean house on all the remaining Windows Fans, and it might hit VZ---if the rumor turns out true...

    Why do they still keep updating the windows 10 mobile for insiders if the platform is dying? Do they plan to incorporate some of the features into windows 10 arm? https://mspoweruser.com/windows-10-m...dows-insiders/

    I am thinking because of MS's biggest customer, HP. MS doesn't give a rats a$$ about us but I can't see them screwing over HP after putting out the x3.

    I don't know that HP had a choice. Android certainly doesn't have anything to make Workspace work. HP is leveraging Continuum and MS's unbeatable RDP to make that go. Let's see what DeX brings to the table.

    It's really nice, for me, to see that the IoT core is ready for such implementation. I'm hoping Cortana bots go big, and a watch run mostly by voice, with phone calling, would work a lot better than a watch run mostly by touch, that you have to pair with a bulky phone IMO.

    Also because MS has been promising its IoT vision, and yeah, it takes time to get things right, but a little peak under the curtain helps keep the faith!

    What you stated may be one of the Ideas MS has in mind when people like Dona mention that we should think of "mobile" more in terms of something other than just a smartphone.

    I have read articles about another app - WeChat - being used in many Asian countries as an all in one app. Don't see much use here in the US but maybe Cortana will take up some slack.

    I also agree with your comments about Cortana and the future. One of the reasons I enjoy Windows mobile is because of Cortana. I know that siri and google assistants mat be better at searching but I feel they are so dull in personality. Cortana feels more natural to talk to. I would be quite happy as you mention for Cortana to be a big part of mobile future. Especially if she is available and integrated across all of my technology. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt1798709/
