    Hey folks, I came across this petition for the Andromeda Device to be released, it has over 15k signatures so far.

    Do you think this will be an effective strategy? Will it impact Microsoft's decision on the device at all? Will you be signing it?

    "Show Microsoft the demand for the Surface Phone or Andromeda!"

    Yes, that has been confirmed several times. Sign the petition! Let's see Microsoft we want the device.

    Microsoft has said telephony capabilities. They have also said it is not a phone. Telephony could just be the ability to make calls over LTE.

    Also, no petitions in business decisions don't matter. Maybe if 5÷ million signed it, but even then I doubt MS would care. Last word I heard the potential high cost of manufacturing is a big challenge.

    This has already been shared in another thread. Even so, despite all the signatures, I am not sure MS will care. Sadly.

    I'm surprised that the existence of the petition isn't more widely known on Windows Central. Certainly mass media doesn't care. $1,000 phone times 15,000 people could add up. I would certainly buy two.

    Even if all 15,000 signed it that wouldn’t be enough. You would need a million or more to get their attention.
    Most people here know about it but many know it won’t matter.

    Yeah, I have to agree. Microsoft isn't in the business of making devices for a small number of hardcore fans. Not a very cost effective venture. It's apparent that their research department has deemed this project to be a dead end.

    I see, my bad, I tried lookin for one but couldn't find it. I don't like making repeat threads, I know how annoying they can get.

    That's what I expected, I mean this type of revolutionary hardware is bound to cost a lot to make due to it being new and there not being the manufacturing infrastructure for it.

    You would need a million or more to get their attention.
    Unfortunately, I'm inclined to agree with you, hopefully the petition continues to grow and gets someone's attention at Microsoft.
