Details of Microsofts pocketable Surface device leaked

The Next Microsoft Surface May Fit in Your Pocket

Microsoft’s pocketable Surface device is a bold gamble after the failure of Windows Phone

Alas, Andromeda, if it's indeed real, is still being developed inside Microsoft, and there's still the possibility of things changing.

Code-named Andromeda, the device has been the subject of widespread speculation in recent months amid a series of leaks and clues in the Windows APIs and other code, including this new tidbit appearing to reference the different states of the device hinge.

Thurrott.com's Brad Sams previously reported the "Andromeda" device was scheduled to be released in 2018 - this year.

But in the ABC interview, he said he couldn't comment on advice of his lawyer. "I respect the prosecutors", Cohen said. As far as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, Cohen said, "I don't like the term witch hunt".

That's about what we've expected since some of the earlier rumors, but it's how Microsoft describes it in an internal document obtained by The Verge.

Microsoft is reportedly working on a dual-display pocketable device which would act as a surface mobile-cum-computer system. It's meant to create a "new and disruptive" device category, as per the leaked email, and will combine "innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience". Andromeda could try to combine a PC and smartphone. Many were disappointed when Microsoft decided not to proceed with that innovative design concept, but the company apparently never gave up on the idea of a dual screen mobile device. Renders (see below) created by David Breyers look nearly exactly like the current prototype's, according to The Verge's sources. His renders were, in turn, based on Microsoft patents.

Microsoft is supposedly experimenting with just such an arrangement. Prototype Andromeda devices are powered by ARM processors, though considering their experimental nature, it is not yet known whether Microsoft will choose Intel or Qualcomm for the final product if it comes to fruition, that is.
