Microsoft Surface phone tracked down to firm's Redmond campus

Microsoft Surface phone tracked down to firm's Redmond campus
A developer's logs dated October 13th have apparently found where Microsoft is hiding the Juggernaut Alpha, the mysterious phone that could be a Windows Phone 8 handset using the Microsoft Surface name. The information from the logs report showed  the device running Firmware Version: redmond_83012_123215, Windows Phone: 8.0.9903.0, InterfaceType: MobileBroadbandGsm,LongitudeWGS, LatitudeWGS: -122.140942811966, 47.6432204246521. The geographical information puts the device right in Studio H which is located on Microsoft's Redmond campus. Interestingly, that is also where the Windows Phone Design Team plies its trade. Hmm.

The October 13th logs show thed device to be CDMA with a previously unseen build of Windows Phone 8 (build 8.0.903.0 8.0.900.0 cons). Considering Steve Ballmer's desire for Microsoft to be as successful with consumer devices as it is with software, a Microsoft Surface Windows Phone 8 handset doesn't seem so far-fetched, does it?
