Microsoft Re-Re-Enters Mobile Again for Another TIme


Microsoft had a winner (in their minds) with Windows Mobile 5, 6, 7 and 8. Then came Windows Phone 10. That was incredible. The only downside is that they have pulled their own app support from their own devices. Also, no one is developing for it because they keep pulling the plug on everything they do. That being said, I'm sure the new Surface Mobile device will be so much better. It comes with a projector after all and is pretty much guaranteed to have a life cycle of less than a year. Still if you want to throw your money at a device that won't be supported for very long, consider the upcoming Surface Mobile.

Two new codenames are also dropped: ‘Surface Peking’ and ‘Surface Slavonia’. It’s unclear what these could be but they are mentioned alongside the word “terminal” which suggests they could be some sort of hardware similar to the Microsoft Display Dock used for Continuum functionality. ‘Surface Peking’ can be interpreted as ‘Surface Beijing’ as the names are interchangeable.
