While the Note 8 that's available at Microsoft isn'tdifferent from the version sold by Samsung, carriers, and other retailers, the Redmond companyencourages customers to "personalize your phone with the MicrosoftLauncher." As you may know, Microsoft Launcher (previously known as ArrowLauncher) is free to download via Google Play, and provides seamless access todocuments, email, calendar, and so on. This Microsoft-made Android launcheralso lets you easily sync your phone activities with your Windows PC, thanks toits Continue on PC feature.


For now, it looks like Microsoft is selling the Samsung Galaxy Note8 in only one color version: Midnight Black. Interested? If you are, you can order your Note 8 from Microsoft via the source link below.

I wonder what's keeping Microsoft from making their own Android based smartphone with ALL Microsoft Apps and The Microsoft Launcher (Former Arrow Launcher) as the default launcher? Revive The awful "Lumia" name. Give it another chance... Or just make a 'Surface Phone' with Android.

"What's keeping Microsoft from making their own Android based smartphone" - pride, probably.

Probably still not sure what they want to do. But that would be cool. Wish Techie would show up with his comments. Although very long sometimes entertaining. What ever happen to him or his alt accounts?

Bundle this with a full Windows 10 on ARM app for DeX, similar to the full Linux on Galaxy app, and this will be far greater than a Surface Phone running merely Windows 10 on ARM. The Note 8 will be an even more practical full fledged Pocket PC with such app.
