    Let's see what happens in October.
    Halloween happens in October. You know, trick or treat. Fingers crossed (not too tightly though).

    I don't speak Italian but it's a Romance language so my Spanish helps. I believe this to be in reference to the WoA devices planned for this fall and not so much an Andromeda device per se. Call it a testbed if you will for telephony on a non-phone contraption. It could go a long way to gauge consumer interest in a "mobile" device that makes phone calls and SMS while being a full-fledged PC.

    I do not know about you, but I hate to have to go grab my phone no matter if it is close by or far away every time I get a voicemail or phone call while working from my PC. I do not see why an average consumer would not want to at least have this option there. Especially for corporate or large businesses. The more options the better I always say...If you do not actually need it or could live without, sure no sweat just don't use it.

    I agree. Andromeda will most likely come after this feature has been in the testing waters with RS5 for a bit.

    If you have T-Mobile why don't you get a Digits line? You download the PC app which includes a dialer and that's it, your PC is now your phone.

    I've actually been looking into that. Just haven't pulled the trigger.

    I had no idea this was possible! I'm assuming this works over wifi or an always connected PC on LTE.

    LTE. If you don't have it, dongle life baby. The SIM is a mirror of your phone number so both devices get phone calls and texts simultaneously. When one or the other is not being used you disable it or what I do is keep it muted so the logs are always synced.

    If you are waiting for an Andromeda announcement you are at least 12 months off.

    I am looking forward to MS announcing Surface Glasses and the next Zune.

    Then again I am still waiting for the upgrade for Windows RT.

    This is just the first step to the end of Microsoft as a player in the hardware/device space. The list of major corporate icons that slouched towards irrelevancy and extinction because of a shortsighted focus on the status quo is long.

    You’re right. They’re certainly not the first and won’t be the last.

    It's starting to feel like this is something third parties will have to bear the torch on. I mean look at what
    Intel and Asus showed at Computex. It's pretty clear they all also have an inkling that this is a device category that has some potential merit. No one seems to know exactly in what specific way or form factor though. Asus' Project Precog looked the best IMO but... It's pretty clear from Intel's lack of commitment and MS' possible Andromeda cancellation that no one wants to be the first to market with this. It is obviously a risk. Torrent TurboTax Gogoanime

    It's a shame either way. I want to buy into a MS mobile solution but Between W10M and this... The blows are starting to sting. Even if third parties do try to take up the mantle here I'm not sure I'd want their solution since half the time experimental form factors from third-parties get dropped like hot garbage
    I listened to Brad Sams' podcast last night and he referred to this article. I guess everyone was right in this one. It appears to be delayed but isn't cancelled as yet. Brad stress that someday MS might cancel Andromeda but right now he is confident its still on.
