    Microsoft will develop "ultimate mobile device" says Satya Nadella

    Becoming a technology leader rather than me-too mobile maker will provide dividends.

    Re: Microsoft will develop "ultimate mobile device" says Satya Nadella

    I am sure any new hardware they design/release will be awesome, and every bit one of the best mobile devices available. Their issue will continue to be that a surface phone will likely run sun variant of Windows Mobile/Phone etc though, and I don't even think x86 emulation would save it.

    It is a shame as I do like Windows 10 and it's mobile cousins as an OS (in general) - but without the app support from major vendors it's doomed to continue to fail.

    Re: Microsoft will develop "ultimate mobile device" says Satya Nadella

    Frankly, they have a long hard path to re-gain some customer confidence before they can achieve anything.

    Edit:.... and I'm yet to see them make any movement towards doing this. Windows 10 is gradually becoming more and more of an uncontrollable and dangerous monster. They need to put control of how things are done back into the hands of the users and stop force installing 3rd party apps. I'm sick of my computer updating when it wants too, rather than when I want it too.

    I'd love to know what happened to their feted compiler. It was supposed to make it easy for just about any iOs or Android app to be ported to Windows Phone. They announced it with so much confidence, as though it was already a done deal and they'd be closing the app gap within months. Had it worked, it would have completely changed the fortunes of their mobile OS.

    This phone could be the best piece of smartphone hardware on the market, but it won't persuade anyone to give up their flagship Android/iPhone.

    They dropped it. I'm trying to find a link but i'm sure I saw a story on Hexus stating the android one was gone and the iOS was scaled back. I'll try and find the link.

    Don't see why - RIM's update to allow Android apps to be repackaged and run on Playbook OS 2 and Blackberry OS 10 didn't save them, and that really did "just work"...

    Actually what most current Windows Phone users would like to know is when there is going to be some genuine app support and not some fabled "jesus" phone that does as little as any other Windows Phone device.
    I love the Windows Phone OS but everytime i look for an app its not available but is for Android or IOS, i would like to buy a 950XL but the lack of apps means i likely will be going back to Android.

    I understand that the general market trend is going towards ever larger phones, but surely I can't be the only who thinks HP are taking things a bit far?

    Or are HP just making really small monitors now?

    Trying to compete with Lenovo's 27" Horizon tablet I guess?

    Looking at their recent offerings in the Surface line I think it would be unwise to simply discount them straight off the bat. The problem is with their history of phones and especially with the rather unspectacular acquisition of Nokia they have a lot to prove. With Apple apparently wavering (headphone jack) and Samsung dealing with exploding batteries this is probably Microsoft's chance to make some headway; they just need to do it quickly. With that said the reception to Google's new phone wasn't exactly amazing, so Microsoft will have to pull out all the stops to make an impact.

    I'm not convinced it's fair to complain to MS that third parties don't develop apps for Windows. Google are a particularly egregious offender IMNSHO - there's not a single Google app for Windows Phone, and you can't tell me Google can't afford to invest a little in Win Phone development.

    The only way MS are going to persuade more people to support Windows Phone is by increasing market share, and the only way they can realistically do that is if they produce something compelling that makes people want to move to the platform. They're not going to do that with an identikit high end smartphone that's only distinguished by the OS; they have to innovate.

    Although tbh I reckon they'd probably do pretty well if they just slapped a physical keyboard on a Lumia 550 and sold them by the bucketload to the people who used to buy entry-level blackberries...

    I admit, the idea of a phone being a VERY LITERAL pocket computer peaks my interest. Going beyond just a smartphone, but being your Home PC after you get home from work or college and such is a interesting concept. Question is can Microsoft do it well? I would hope they use Qualcomm's fastest processors for these new phones.
