    Not. It's too ugly, too big, doesn't have glance, a wimpy excuse for a camera and it has Windows 10. Those are all the strikes against it I need to see.
    Well, it's supposed to be a business phone. I think it looks good, battery should be excellent due to the size, great specs - I mean, when have you seen 4GB RAM and 64GB memory on a windows phone? The specs are quite good. The camera is enough for business people and not photography enthusiasts like myself (lumia 1020 user)

    isn't the lumia 1520/1320 bigger than this phone?

    As a network admin who drags his users kicking and screaming onto the bleeding edge (I wish)... I am very interested to see what this virtualization of legacy apps to run on a Windows Mobile device turns out to be. I'm certain it will be more than simply running the Remote Desktop app connected to a Windows machine where the software is actually installed.
    I use Windows 10 on all my personal devices and I love it. I'm totally curious about this too. That's what I thought when I first read about HP's virtualization. My thought is it's glorified remote desktop. That's nothing new. It's probably a remote desktop version that works with Continuum via HP's VM subscription from employer. But if that's all it is, it's only for business/corporate users. Nothing 99% of us would ever use daily.

    Its app virtualization. It looks like it is running on your desktop but is really running on a server on n azure or HP's implementation of azure cloud.

    I have read alot about the HP Elite X3.. And they make a desktop(like laptop) that can only work with the phone.. And here's goes my idea.. Microsoft can also do the same.. Make a desktop(like laptop) that is build in with the dock functionality and keyboard.. But remove the touch pad of the desktop and replace it with 950xl instead !! in landscape position !! Walaaahh !!!! Then put a charger port (usb type c) that actually charge the 950xl and some Usb port for pendrive !!! So people can see that 950 xl is the engine for the laptop !! *sorry for bad english

    Well Mobile World Congress is here. is there any Microsoft booth at this event. You would think that Microsoft has something to show. how about a Surface Mini 8 inch tablet or a new Surface 3A tablet to replace the Surface Atom CPU Tablet

    As Continuum for Android will only be announced at Build 2016, it's definitely not that

    You read it here first

    LTE and continuum enabled snapdragon Band 3 with a wireless connection to a foldable touch screen, available in a range of sizes from 5" to 30"+

    Well that's what I'd like anyway :)

    MS is rolling out 5G in 135 markets in the US early this summer, and all current Windows Phone 8.1 phones already have the hardware to run it. MS service will cost $50/mo, and allows unlimited talk, text, and 25 GB data.

    That would blow my mind.

    I retract my hope/prediction that it's Google apps. I just noticed an old post on The Verge's forum thread. David Goodhand (MS emloyee) stated that he thinks he knows what the tease was about, and described his opinion as follows:

    That does not sound AT ALL like "Google apps coming to WP", and more like "WP skin on Android phone". Boo

    I don't see how an entry level Lumia 350 would blow anyone's mind. Hope he was just kidding about that.

    I'm not talking about the OP (which does contain a joke about a Lumia 350). I'm talking about someone down in the comment thread saying that if the tease is what he thinks it is, he knows about it and it's "insane but it might work". Google Apps coming to WP is not 'insane', so I'm now convinced that that's not what we're getting.

    Or maybe this is it? Cyanogen launches the “Mod” platform, with lots of Microsoft integration

    Edit: nope, a more likely candidate is Universal Windows Apps on Android and iOS using Xamarin, see a few posts down.

    I think his comment clearly says that a windows skin on Android base is not an option for Microsoft irrespective of their efforts to bring their services on every platform.

    Now I remember similar "leaks" before the announcement of the bridges to Android and iOS, it could be something "unexpected" of that caliber... kind of like reverse bridges from UWP to Android and iOS...

    That's basically what I have been thinking of... but the other way around.
    These past few months have been very confusing for me, as several things happened:
    1. They offer their entire eco-system on other OSs
    2. They invest in the biggest android competitor a large amount of money for no apparent reason (cyanogenmod)
    3. They create a ROM of their own OS to run on an Android phone (Mi4) for "testing"
    4. They cut deals where they loose tremendous amount of money (Samsung royalties) without disclosing the details (everyone assumed it'd be offering MS services for their devices, but they are free and good anyway, so why not?)

    I think it's pretty safe to say that the "blow your mind" bit is not android skin, or app, or new phone,
    I think it's actually having a global ROM for several devices backed by companies and CM to allow either installing W10M or have each phone dual-boot to whatever OS you want, I just hope the OS will be polished enough to have people want to stay in it

    It makes a lot of since I think to back cyanogenmod to be able to integrate MS services deep into the phone. By replacing Google services with MS, it creates an area for MS to expand.

    Having MS services preinstalled will also help expand there services since a lot of people may just use whatever is on there phone when they get it. At the very least, it would raise awareness and make it easy for people to try.

    A dual-boot OS would actually make some since and would fit the quote from someone from MS saying "that its just crazy enough that it could work" not sure if its a good idea or not though. Hopefully we'll find out the mind blowing news soon.

    Blow your mind... Most of the comments here are things that would not blow my mind. Microsoft coming out with beautiful hardware and software that works well would blow my mind. Unless it is something is disruptive in the industry then it won't be mind blowing... adding android apps isn't mind blowing...

    With that said... Hp's elite x3 was a very welcome surprise but not mind blowing...

    Agreed. Whatever this "mind blowing" thing is, I'm losing hope that we'll hear about it during MWC. Hope I'm wrong, but it's not looking good, and it's looking like another ho-hum year for Windows fans at MWC.

    It's not going to happen at MWC. It probably won't even happen at the XBox event coming up. It'll more than likely happen at BUILD.

    Edit: The Xamarin news is pretty huge... What will be really mind blowing is if they actually announce two way bridges at BUILD.

    Agreed. From the Ars Technica post on the acquisition: "Going forward, this could lead to parts of the Universal Windows Platform becoming cross-platform, as well as lower prices for the Xamarin software stack. The company will start sharing details at its Build conference at the end of March."

    How about a Generic Windows 10 Mobile ROM Installer ? You download it on S7,Mi5,iphone 6s etc and it will install Windows 10 Mobile on the phone. Wont it be Mind Blowing?
    I feel like the announcement will be something along these lines. We have already heard rumors that phones such as the Oneplus 3 and mi5 will get WP roms, so they might have figured out a way to install a ROM on any rooted Android phone.
