    A Microsoft Surface Phone does exist....


    Microsoft does indeed have their own Windows Phone in the works | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    There has been a very insignificant rumor that the Surface Phone is in existence. The first reported sjghting was a browser test that showed a Surface Phone. The idea of one sounded ludicrous and yesterday, a source mentioned this is happening. But apparently today, an actual reputable source says the same too.

    The Surface Phone will be promoed the same as the Surface Tablet, US only and sold only in the Microsoft Stores, and the phone won't be sold on a carrier but perhaps unlocked and full price. A source mentions that it will be "significantly unique" compared to the other Windows Phone 8 handsets. It will arrive early 2013.

    I wonder how Nokia and HTC will feel about that. I would love to get my hands on a 920.

    You sound like an Apple fan. Haven't even seen it, know any of the specs or anything about it, but you are not only already planning on buying it, but you might even buy it early.

    Yea, I'm specuating. But, I bet it's just as good, if not better than this:

    Samsung ATIV S Windows Phone 8

    Inside the crazy-thin 8.7mm brushed aluminum chassis is a huge 4.8” HD Super AMOLED display made from Corning Gorilla Glass 2 (read: tough to break, but still light)and a rundown of killer specs: 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of onboard RAM, and an 8MP autofocus rear camera and 1.9MP front-facing camera. You’ll have the choice of two storage capacities – 16GB or 32GB – and both models have a MicroSD slot for expanded storage. Backing all of this up is a massive 2300mAh battery to keep you rocking all day.


    I'm sure you heard my story of my phone, so the Oooo is excitement of just the thought getting a new phone. I'm finished with Andoid after checking out my friends Windows 7 Samsung. I'm finished with contracts also. It'll be prepay. So, it's either the Samsung ATIV S or the Surface. Goodbye Vz! Hello freedom to save money!

    I'll get the 32 GB. I have a 16GB micro card I'll be able to slip in as well.

    How much are you gonna pay for it ? It's gonna be quite expensive here in Brazil.

    No official prices out, but Belgian retailer has listed the phone on its website for a price tag of €549.

    €549.00 EUR = $708.60 USD as of today. I doubt if it'll be that much here.
