Foldable Microsoft device could be the mythical Surface Phone
by Alan Friedman / Dec 16, 2017, 11:24 AM
The report yesterday indicated that the device will come with the ability to make and take calls. Today, a tweet from Windows tipster Walking Cat revealed a link to a list of apps in the Windows Store. These apps are in a category with the label of windows-8828080. According to Walking Cat, this number is connected to Project Andromeda, which is said to be a special version of Windows 10 to be used on the folding device.
Some of the apps under this category are phone-only, which seems to indicate that the folding Surface device changes from a tablet to a phone. This is still up in the air, and there is no word from the gang in Redmond about what the immediate plans are for this product. A tablet that can turn into a phone and back would certainly be in demand by business users.

Wonder where all those delusional surface phone fan boys went? They always mentioned that the surface phone would eventually come out and destroy the competition

Am among those who are waiting for x86 phone/phablet. check GDP win, Nintendo switch demands. GDP win was Funded 535% and switch has sold more than 10m units. If they design well form factor x86 phone can be better than any handheld console, continuum will made it phone, tablet, desktop etc, you can play your games everywhere, think of those emulators like citra which are not available in any mobile os, indie games in steam and GOG etc. but if they ignore gaming community and release iphone like device, which dont have customization, emulators, and other full windows advantage then they can say goodbye to mobile market.

Foldable phones would be a new category and rather niche. I don't see them replacing the non foldable ones as the latter do the job very well. I'd be more interested in a 10.5 foldable iPad Pro, providing that it won't make it any thicker.
