    I suspect Microsoft will want to avoid words like "mobile" or "phone" when they release Andromeda. Or should I say, if they release Andromeda.

    I absolutely believe they'll avoid calling it the Surface Phone. And I think they'll use the word cellular instead of mobile when discussing it's communication capabilities.

    So what will they call it? And what kind of language will they use when Panos is up on stage announcing it to the world? My guess would be that Microsoft's PR/Marketing have spent countless hours pondering this.

    Personally, I'd like to see them call it the Surface Courier, as a complimentary nod to it's origins.

    What do you think they should call it?

    Surface Flip

    Surface Fold ("Come into the fold-- Surface Fold")

    Surface Note (Uncomfortably close to Samsung Galaxy Note)

    Surface Folio

    I think they'd distance themselves from Courier. That story is depressing when you consider what could have been. And, arguably, what selling point of the device is personified by the word "courier"? Its selling point is not messaging or delivery. It's note taking, folding/expanding, transforming. Calling it courier would also seem pretty two-faced, since they pretty heartlessly trashed the concept and laid-off the team that was designing it. To come back years later and make the device they were originally designing? Cold.

    I think there is a possibility they may not use the Surface moniker. Pretty unlikely considering everything from Surface Pro to Surface Hub has the name, but I don't think it's impossible they may just call it the Microsoft Fold. Leaves room to make a whole line of Folds. The Bi-Fold, the Tri-Fold, the Fold Laptop. A Fold Laptop sure could be cool...
