    If Microsoft is out of the phone business as far as hardware how will this alleged "Surface Phone" materialize?
    Well, they're not out of the phone hardware business. The hardware development cycle is very long. We probably won't see mobile hardware with a Microsoft logo on it until 2017. But Microsoft has stated multiple times that they are planning to release Microsoft mobile devices.

    To continue to repeat "Microsoft is out of the phone hardware business" is just as much a practice in futility as to repeat "The Surface Phone is coming this year!"

    Understood.
    It may take time and a change at the helm for mobile to blossom slightly.

    Here's a snippet from Seeking Alpha that's interesting:

    Investor Takeaway
    I don't think Microsoft is done with mobile. It's too important strategically. Having been burned by the Nokia purchase, Microsoft will avoid frontal assaults on the existing mobile empires of iOS and Android. I believe the company's mobile strategy can be summed up in three words: infiltrate, augment and convert.

    Microsoft will infiltrate the existing mobile ecosystems through its cloud services and subscription software (already underway). It will augment existing mobile devices through HoloLens-like display devices as well as providing its own augmented reality vision in HoloLens. And finally, Microsoft will convert many current Windows users to tablets, convertibles and, yes, probably future Windows Phones.
    I'm optimistic that Microsoft can make progress on all fronts in 2017 and rate it a Buy.

    Yeah, I agree with both of you and Jerry's points. Sometimes it can really take one.
