    Those are amazing designs, quite graceful and believable. And I like the sharpness of the edges and corners - never did like rounded corners

    A little (very slight) edge to the industrial look but not bad for an idea. Given how the Surface Book came out and how the Pro 3 really got the form right but then the 4 got us the wonderful Hello features, I tend to think even a first gen Surface phone is likely to wow us. I'm thinking its something that will make Apple say "darn wish we'd thought of that". Wouldn't it be funny to end up with both an iPhone 8 and an iPhone "pro" in 2017 just because of the Surface phone? I don't think phones have as much wiggle room for "wow" features that larger devices have but I'm pretty confident whatever ones can be found will be used. I don't think any phone yet has a UV sensor or temperature sensor. Just giving food for thought but I like this mockup. It stimulates ideas which is always what this entire industry should be about.

    i don't think that type cover will be usable in real life..otherwise the concept looks good :)

    Depends on how thin the type cover is and whether it has a way of attaching to phone

    I think keyboard is unusable and the pen should be put inside the phone.
    Also i think this is a standard form factor, and surface phone had to be different.

    I think you're right, the keyboard would be quite cramped - this is 6 inches or so? Another concept from another user had the keyboard folding so that you could get a wide version

    That device is chunnnkkkyy but i like it.

    And an open question to everyone: Do we think that if MS were to include a pen that slides into the phone they would be criticized for copying the Note line?

    The kickstand also needs that angular design so that it can function both in landscape and portrait mode. Like the earlier Surface Phone concept we have all seen.

    I like the dary grey and blue look though

    What if the Surface Phone has a projected keyboard that allows any surface to be a keyboard extension, similar to how this (https://www.amazon.com/CTX-VK200-Red...pUvbUpU3572010) works?

    Also, instead of a normal pen, we get ourselves something similar to the ones available on galaxy notes? Small so that it can be fitted into the phone, but with clickable toggle/eraser at the end, of course, or any other extra features.

    At that point, I might as well use the on-screen keyboard.

    Weird I saw this a while back. I think phone concepts just featured it finally. I am not a fan of the blue marks on the side? What? Maybe if it came with 2 audio jacks.

    again we cant think that shrinking surface device to a phone level would we amazing design for a phone, surface ignited the pc industry, the PHONE should do the same

    Hmm...

    What I like:
    - Speaker placement looks like it could deliver better stereo.
    - Form looks alright, but may need getting used to from the smooth edges of competitor devices.

    What I don't like:
    - ...are those speaker holes at the back of the device, too?
    - Screen looks awkward. If it would be made to "touch" the edges of the device, why not curve it towards the edges instead? OR make the border of the screen the same color as the speaker grills (if they're speaker grills).
    - What's with those blue squares on the sides? I find them distracting.
    - Keyboard interface... for real? A foldable portable bluetooth keyboard may be better.

    P.S.
    I'm aware that the OP is probably not the designer. Rhetorical questions.

    Those blue buttons may be recessed volume and power buttons, instead of what we have now.

    What I actually meant to say was having projected keyboard when in Continuum mode. But I was typing that comment right before I went to sleep, so pardon me for not pointing that out hahaha :D

    Well hp and lenovo are not direct competitors of the Surface perse. In fact that is what MS is hoping 3rd manufacturers do, copy their design. They are making excellent first party hardware like the sp4 and the sb as sort of a benchmark for other OEMs to follow. Then other OEMs make excellent 3rd party hardware and MS sells W10 and customers subsequently use MS services on them. So that analogy doesn't really hold water.

    As far as the second comment with Apple...yes they were criticized heavily apart from Apple fanboys. The day it was announced i remember Surface started trending on Twitter.

    and they also copied the living image concept, the small and large phone idea, and others too

    I would buy one, I've been waiting for a surface phone to come out for months now. That being said I would like to see some other color schemes for it as well.

    I like the phone design a lot, but the keyboard is a no-go. Don't always have a solid surface to set-up on.

    Would prefer a slider body, or even better, a clamshell setup with a Black Berry keyboard with the swiping cursor navigation that BlackBerry had on their Passport model. The keyboard could be kept pretty slim if using alloys for the frame.
