Microsoft Working on Ultimate Mobile Device: Satya Nadella

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been long rumored to be developing its next-generation of smartphone devices which will aim to avenge the loss incurred by the company's failed Windows Phone devices.

Although Microsoft has never confirmed the existence of the Surface Phone, there is no denying that it is one of the most-anticipated devices.

Nonetheless, despite being a no-show at last month's Microsoft event, rumors about the Surface Phone continue to grow louder.

According to MacRumors, Nadella's statement simply means that Microsoft wants to redefine the field by making the "ultimate mobile device" - what is now being rumored as the Surface Phone.

If this project comes to life, possibly with Microsoft's Continuum technology, users may be to use the Surface Phone as a fully-functional computer, by just plugging in an external display, keyboard and mouse. In fact, according to the latest rumors, Microsoft will finally unveil the alleged device at next year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) happening in Barcelona, Spain from February 27- March 2, 2017, along with the equally anticipated Surface Pro 5.

However, despite running on a Windows OS, it is also alleged that the Surface Phone will still be able to run some Android and iOs apps.

Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, has this week given an interview to The Australian Financial Review, in which he talked about working in the cloud business, the success of some start-ups, and the company's current momentum in a number of sections of the tech industry.

Many believe that Microsoft has finally abandoned Windows Mobile and focuses on making its applications available on platforms from competitors.

Stay tuned for more news and updates regarding the Surface phone.
