A few months back, Microsoft announced the Surface, an ultra-mobile laptop/tablet hybrid running Windows, taking advantage of Windows 8 and Windows RT’s new touch-screen user-interface. Since then, many have been hoping for a Surface smartphone: while no announcements have been made, several artists have created concepts depicting what they expect a Surface Phone to look like.
We’ve heard it multiple times over the past few months and we’re hearing it again today: Microsoft is working on their own smartphone.
For those technology loving fans around the world who may have had their heads buried under a rock in the last week, or been located somewhere that is detached from the world wide web then it may come as a shock to learn that Microsoft recently lifted the covers on a pretty sweet looking tablet, named the Microsoft Surface. Powered by Windows 8, the Surface looks like it will be a serious contender in the tablet space when released but somehow I don't think Apple are panicking just yet.
