    Any chance that Microsoft will showcase Surface Phone in MWC 2017?

    I highly doubt it since the software still isn't there and they're probably going to want it to be better than a "960" would be probably.

    Of course there could be surprises like the Surface Book but frankly, I'd bet against it.

    Agreed. Since MWC is at the end of February and the beginning of March, this means neither RS2 (Creators) or RS3 would be released, so definitely no.

    I'd say something like September 2017. 2018 is too late IMO. 3 years no phones is too much.

    No because MS usually have their own events.

    yeah we need some reveals; the W10M market is pretty thin in the US. MS didn't introduce any x60 phones, The surface is an ever extending rumor (2016! 2017! 2018! No Really!) and the Liquid Jade Primo is gone from the MS store(edit: it's still there, the store just sucks). What are the suspected introductions? Cerulean, HP Consumer? Anything else?

    Not that I know of. I tried pinging CEO Greg Murphy in the comments of a blog article to ask... No reply, but he may not have seen it.

    Maybe someone could Twit them?

    For those interested, here is the program listing of the exhibitors and Cerulean does not show as a participant.

    I believe Wharton Brooks are very close to unveiling and MWC is the perfect place to do it. Also, I think HP has had success with how the Elite has been praised but they will release consumer devices, possibly two. So, as far as Surface, I think that MS wouldn't want to upstage either of the others products, but then again I could be wrong because Surface won't be a phone, it will be a device that can make calls and it will be premium so all three will compliment each other. I wish Alcatel was there as well with something else and news of WW release of Idol 4s. 🤓

    If surface phone even comes out id say early 2018 or end of 2018 if not perhaps not for a few years. Seeing there working on Windows 10 on ARm ad they want to make it perfect.

    All way too late. It can be technically the best mobile you've ever seen but everyone will have jumped ship and the best mobile will go down with it.

    I've seen this all to often as someone who often backs the little guy or the alternative rather then the choice of the sheep. Loved the various obscure devices and computers I've backed, but the end being nigh is usually as the sate Win mobile is in now, with a mix of denial and resignation while sales drop off to zero, developers stop developing, and no new hardware is developed. The only life then is with it in the hands of enthusiasts who will keep a niche going.

    I hope to be wrong though and MS really do have something wonderful up their sleeves that will wow everyone. It's extremely unlikely though.

    Still, I do like my 640. Roughly the apps I need one way or another, nice to use and awesome battery life, the likes I'll never see on Android (without a brick sized phone).

    We are all putting our faith in the Surface phone, which is great, don't get me wrong, but it is the lack of apps that is killing the platform. Unless Microsoft can fix both the hardware and software problem with one device (Windows on ARM could help bridge the app gap) then the Surface phone will still have the same problems as the phones now have.

    I am most definitely NOT putting any faith in a Surface phone. It is likely still a set of concept drawings on a wall somewhere. Probably a bunch of different concepts under the Surface Phone name. It is currently Vaporware.

    My faith, if there is any, is in two things:
    1. the fact that MS keeps updating the W10M OS.
    2. My phone does what I need. Even if they stop updating, it still does what I need.

    I agree with the things that are keeping your faith. I do hope the Surface phone is much more than a concept drawing on a wall at this point though. That would be a bummer.

    Microsoft needs to work on the OS a bit more make it stable then try to rally developers to build apps and convince other manufacture's. With out all 3 the surface phone or Surface mini or anything with surface naming will be a disaster.

    Here is a rumor article from 2012 about a surface phone:
    Microsoft Surface Phone rumor resurfaces, to hit the shelves by next summer

    It has been a rumor for literally 5 years! I'd say the idea that it is a concept drawing somewhere in Microsoft is the OPTIMISTIC side of things...
