    Anything that comes out this year (which would be silly) WILL be rushed, i.e. 950/950 XL launch all over again. Ideally one should learn from their mistakes.

    Agreed. In fact I'd be happy if MS held back until 2017 for two reasons...
    This is among the rare occasions I would like to see a new product later than sooner.

    Thing is, my perspective is that hardware wise, there's no major problems, what was rushed and not done particularly well was the software release, and that's really where their effort needs to be placed. I can understand why they'd consider making this coincide with a new phone release, however, I also think it's something which can be gradually released and is really hardware independent.

    At the end of the day, they need to address the issues that make choosing windows mobile, a step back. In my opinion, hardware isn't one of them, and a lot of people aren't going to just select windows even if there's some new feature, when there's a severe step backwards in app availability, app quality and future support of the platform.

    Remember they put a few hundred into getting Xamarin. They are making plays to enhance the platform. I'm hoping for surface phones.

    Remember they put a few billion into getting Nokia, then Nadella gets on board and everything since has been dismantling their acquisition so...

    The answers to that are as varied as the number of people replying and range from nothing to everything.

    I'm not sure what post you were responding to though or how this question fits into the theme of the thread which is false rumors about Surface Phone being announced at IFA... Which it obviously was not.

    Maybe it was announced but Satya had a media blackout because he wants it to fail?

    Ha, I hope it's more mind blowing than what he was talking about last time. (What was it anyway??!!)

    My bet is that it was Continuum and when it did not get the response he thought it would, he stayed quiet.

    I never heard for sure what it was, and I'm not sure anyone else knows for sure either. I had also heard it might have been Linux bash on Windows.

    Have I missed something? I see absolutely no evidence that a surface phone is in the works.
