    “…when you say we’ll make more phones, I’m sure we’ll make more phones, but they will not look like phones that are there today.”

    As to the launch date, the Redmond-based company may have announced an event on May 23rd but I don’t think that a Windows 10-powered smartphone is going to show up before the end of the year. If you are looking for an appropriate time for Microsoft to release a smartphone that shows off the Windows 10 platform on a mobile handset to best effect, that would be the launch of the Redstone 3 - the Windows 10 update due to be launched late Q3/early Q4 in 2017. This will offer many new features that are focused on the mobile experience. With new software comes the opportunity to sell new hardware. Can Nadella have his surprise ready for September? His recent comments suggest that new hardware for 2017 is still on course.

    I believe it's more implied than confirmed. Hence the wording 'confirms'.

    Yeah this sounds like it's in a development stage where they're working on a new game changer kind of as we all figured. Going to be interesting to see what develops.

    While I hope that is true I don't expect it to come because there were way too much rumors about it and until I don't hear it from Microsoft I won't believe it.

    Whatever it is and whenever it comes, I hope they offer some sort of trade in/trade up program.

    From the article; "when you say we we'll make more phones, I'm sure we'll make more phones, but they will not look like phones that are used to today". This implies a surface phone with all the rumours of what a surface phone will be. And although they are just rumours, the quote and the article at the very least, give us a strong impression that Microsoft has not finished in the mobile space.

    It is kind of common sense that one of the largest tech companies in the world worth $370 billion will want ground in the mobile market.

    It doesn't really confirm anything about a phone. It's more of a "mobile" device. Something different.

    Exactly. The next mobile "device" will not be what we know today as a phone. It will be a mobile computing device that also takes phone calls.

    WP fans: It's late
    S.Nadella: A Surface Phone is never late, WP Fans. Nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to.

    Judging from the limited demos we've seen with Windows on ARM I'd say a new Surface device with telephony, internet and a small form factor running Windows on ARM is pretty far away. Certainly doesn't look like it'd launch this year.
