Microsoft working on a Windows 10 Mobile phone powered by a laptop-class Intel processor?
According to some tweets disseminated by @evleaks, Microsoft could be working on a new handset that would be powered by a laptop-class Intel processor. The phone would be running on Windows 10 Mobile. While the first tweets indicated that this was an older concept that Microsoft was no longer moving forward with, a more recent tweet from the serial leaker says that this is "Much more than just a concept. Stay tuned."

Later tweets from Blass include images that appear to be marketing material from the phone, which means that things could be moving ahead with this device, after all. This could end up being the long-rumored Surface Phone, although we would have expected that such a device would run Windows 10 rather than Windows 10 Mobile. It might seem like a waste of power to combine the laptop processor with Windows 10 Mobile

Most of the feedback has been positive, if not cautious. Many are concerned about the limited battery life that such a phone would provide. If this project is indeed moving forward, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Microsoft. It would appear that the consumer market is out of reach for Microsoft. Since the software giant already has its foot inside the door of most major corporations, integrating a Surface Phone with Windows PCs, tablets and other products would seem to be the way for the company to go.
