    Although its time for new flagships to laaunch I was wondering did MSFT totally giveup on the project or does anyone know the progress ! It would really attract more customers to try the new 3d touch user interface in a premium flagship as most of the current flagship owners are deciding ro switch to other platforms due to lack of flagship devices! Also it will help MSFT complete with other hardware competitors...!

    We know flagship is going to be there with win 10. But I highly doubt that MacLaren can come back. They'll go with more slim designs.

    Well if you consider that MSFT totally wasted their time and cancelled a already final project then its quite difficult to absorb it. They are surely going to implement in any of the coming flagsips in the near future

    I don't understand, MSFT cancelled the project MacLaren, 3d interface wasn't ready etc. but it was pretty much finished product, they could have scrapped of 3D interface and relased like "normal phone", certainly it would have it's place on market...

    That wasn't the plan bro...if they would have removed the 3d interface it would be the same as the current line of Lumias....with no premium flagship features! And no customer would have accepted to to buy it specially those group of enthusiast flagship users hoe already caught up on the news about its release would have been surely disappointed with that feature not available!
    Another thing! The Maclaren was never meant for the lower or mid tier market segment, it was meant to be a flagship and quite highly priced device for those who can afford it, now cancelling the feature would just remove the premium tag from the device, nothing extra that it can offer!

    That depends on which market its gonna release first so you have make sure you are pretty present there and also make sure you get the first order and none of that will ever happen, so sit tight...😂

    Yaeah, I understand you. Still it have some nice features, so far what we could see from pics, it was 5.2 full HD phone with 20MP camera in metal body. Probablybit had Snapdragon 800 or similar and it does have microSd slot for which some people are dying on 930.
    It wouldn't offer anything extra for sure but could shrink a gap till the real flaship a little bit. It won't be appealing to non WP users but at least upgrading users (from lets say 920) would have one more option.Of course at reasonable price. At least in USS it would improve presence of WP a little bit, as there aren't any higher end Lumia selling.

    To some extent you are correct, but again it would be a risk if the device doesn't sell well...as it is their market share I very low...and premium users wont be attracted so much as it only would bring minor bump and improvements in specs...and if it doesn't sell well then it will be a loss investment for MSFT..! But ytur point is also valid....dont wory a newflagship device is yet to be announced soon as stated by MSFT in mobile world congress (MWC). Windows central did cover the news...! Lets see!

    Yea..perhaps read about it in Wmpu and win beta...well if it arrives well and good...a lot of 1020 users are willing to upgrade their devices...another important fact is it would be win 10,ready bringing a host of new features, and featuring a current hardware with improved camera experience is what most of the masses desire, a good strategy by MSFT.

    Rumor: Meizu Supreme to use Nokia's hardware / software expertise
    The Lumia 1030 thing is so confusing, they did not say it's a Microsoft, Nokia or Meizu. It might be sign that 1030 would still come.
