Pictures of Microsoft Surface phone outed by Redmond crew?
Microsoft recently decided to promote its new Microsoft Surface tablets by snapping a couple of pictures of Surface users hard at work with the tablet in front of them. But off to the side in both pictures is a phone that looks a little different than any model that has appeared before our eyes before. What we are saying is that this could be the Microsoft Surface phone, a model of which is allegedly being holed up in Studio H at Microsoft's Redmond campus.

This obviously is a prototype and might not even be the final design of a Microsoft Surface phone, but if this is where the company is heading with the device, it certainly looks much nicer than other mythical creatures like Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman and a friendly New Yorker. Meanwhile, the last we've heard is that the Microsoft Surface phone could be in the market by next summer.

Err..if microsoft start selling its own phone,don't think it would affect nokia.many OEM's strong eco system,too many choices to customers..but at the end i will prefer nokia over other's.

Phonearena, is very smart the just talk about thing that they want, why they haven't mentioned that surface table is being sold out pretty much every where, ppl are gonna get tiles every where lol I'm glad and happy.

Horrible ugly big tiles, I believe after using it, they will return it. Why wouldn't it sell out, they only manufactured very limited.™®©

I thought it looked reminiscent of the Dell Venue Pro.

where is the bezel?! seriously, though, it looks like the lumia fx800 concept.

That's what I think too!! If you look close at the front sides of the phone glass it is contoured/angled, kinda like the Nokia lumias where its thicker in the middle but gets slightly skinnier closer to the bottom and top of the phone..

The best thing for Microsoft to do is get Nokia to design and build their smart phone for them. Microsoft would buy it form Nokia and resell it on Their MS websites and in the Microsoft stores opening up over the place. Nokia would be helped because it would get money from Microsoft every times Microsoft needs to buy smart phones from them to sell. Nokia's designers are also better adept at doing this than Microsoft's People. microisoft should let people who know what they are doing design the Microsoft smart phone. Vizio makes Microsoft "Signature" desktop PC's. Nokia can make Microosft's smart phones

Actually, a surface phone is the best thing that could ever happend to the Windows phone platform. That surface phone along with the surface tablet would give WP a big push. I´m still buys the Lumia 920 though :)

Wow that phone is to good to be true, pure concept design, with sharp edges. Lucky Apple didn't patent this design.... This phone is not vaiable for public.™®©

excuse me sir.. doesnt microsoft needs a prototype phone like this one for testing purposes? there is no reason to think that this thing is the "surface phone" but just a prototype they obviously got for every day testings im sure they dont use a lumia for that
