    I wouldn't really call it a Surface boom considering it went up 29% YoY and they released a new device costing between $1500 and $3200. Either they've sold a few Surface books and Surface 4 has stood still or they've sold virtually no Surface books and Surface 4 has enjoyed a decent rise. Whichever way you look at it, the numbers are reasonable but certainly not brilliant.

    As a user of Windows Mobile (and i like it) i do think its doomed unless Microsoft put some real work into it.
    From my perspective they seem to be concentrating on corporate/business rather than consumer. While its all well and good to target a desktop style experience and having the likes of Office working, to get more consumers on board the app store does need some serious work and some decent mobile hardware is needed.
    I had high hopes of a one OS for all devices but Microsoft do not seem to be progressing towards that as fast as i hoped or expected, i am even contemplating switching back to Android for my phone.
    Surface Pro and Surface book while being desirable are simply very expensive, my next choice for a laptop would currently be a Dell XPS.

    From the reviews iv seen, the new surface pro definitely looks like a success!

    Never tried windows mobile though, heard the app store is lacking
