No way Windows Mobile was p... moreI am not sure which region you are, Windows publicly disowned Windows Mobile OS which means there will not be any focus by the app developers. Many of my domestic apps stopped supporting Windows Mobile. It was a good mobile, no doubts on that, it was useful for making calls, taking pictures, sending and receiving messages, emails. But Apps were not supported in my region by the app developers. They only support regions where they are obliged to provide support and services (like EU)

Windows Mobile is obsolete these days, especially that Android has been doing better over the years.
And, Apple implemented back the gesture based UI which is futuristic.

Perhaps if Microsoft allowed their diehard windows phone users to trade up to this new device it may have a fighting chance. The glut of Windows phones that are still out there are worthless, but give a generous credit and the diehards will come flocking back.

Looks awesome. But if it's not going to be ridiculously out of this world expensive, I'll eat my shoe.

Scamsung forget the concept because it was too expensive and noone would buy.
Just consumers paid a lot in tsamsung phones to cover all Samsung expenses spent on this unreliable project.
Now Microsoft which ive up with windows phones thinks they can waste another billions in project which have no chance to see the light of a day and if even it will be possible price will be so high taht noone will afford apart from rich people who had eough to buy Vertu phones for example.

Shanti Dope, 01 Jul 2018I would also love to switch to a Windows phone. Imagine a ... moreYep Windows Phone was a great alternatve to mid, and low end Android devices.
But, also, Windows phones, most of those low end Windows phones was a stuck on a curent version. Lumia 630 is never was get Windows 10 Mobile, also some of other Lumias.. And with those 8.1, Microsoft is disabled own apps, for example, Skype..
And there is no custom roms :D

Windoze, 01 Jul 2018Imagine using Android on a dual-screen device *cringe*You don't need to imagine. ZTE Axon M is there and with cheap price. For some reason, Android os is today, most popular os in the world, at least 100 known OEMs use Android os in their smartphones. Some of them have dual screen (like Axon M).
Try it, is not that bad concept.. To prepare for this Surface Phone - since 2012;

Microsoft, today is (only) cloud company, so yes there is a profit, but, no new phones with ms os, no new bands, watchs, last but not least no apps & games in (still buggy) Windows 10;

So I am guessing with two displays a SOT of 3 hours max

Geric.770, 01 Jul 2018Ha! Try Android at least today, and you'll experience it w... moreAs there is nothing other then Android in the market then of curse most users prefer Android. IOS devices are for only few as there prices are to high for most people on the world and Android you can get even for 50 euro phones. As there are no windows phones on the market that are new and that OS was only for few years so there cant be much of a market for them too.
