In 2016, was released a small number of new gadgets at the mobile OS Windows official updates go only to 13 units, but they can't boast any significant innovations.
In addition, Microsoft stopped funding work on the development of mobile versions of Windows. In spite of this, redmonds not planning to leave the market of mobile devices. On the contrary, the head of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, announced the work on the gadget, radically different from today's mobile devices.
"Today, we manufacture the phones, we have OEMs like HP and others that produce the smartphones, and we chose a very specific area, focusing on management, security, and Continuum – the ability to transform the phone into a personal computer. We guarantee that all our software is available on iOS and Android, and it in many ways. We are looking for what is the next change of form and function.
What we did with Surface is a good example. Nobody was thinking about 2-in-1. We created this category and made it successful up to the moment when there will be more devices 2-in-1. That's what we want to do. I am sure we will be releasing phones, but they will not be similar to existing devices," – said in an interview with Marketplace, the head of Microsoft.
The first information about the mysterious Surface Phone appeared a long time ago. According to head of Microsoft, the smartphone will be a transformer. Perhaps the gadget will run Windows 10, which allows you to turn smartphone into a full PC when connected to the monitor. The first PC-based processors with ARM architecture with Windows 10 able to run x86 applications, due out before the end of 2017. It is likely that after that Microsoft will release a Surface Phone.
