Microsoft’s new ‘pocketable’ Surface to blur lines between PC, mobile

The Next Microsoft Surface May Fit in Your Pocket Microsoft’s pocketable Surface device is a bold gamble after the failure of Windows Phone

According to leaked reports, patents and operating system references, Microsoft has been working on building a new mysterious "pocketable" surface device for nearly two years. Microsoft has apparently been testing stylus input as well, which makes sense for a device that looks like a book when folded over. Codenamed Andromeda, the device features a dual-display design meant to create a "new and disruptive" device category blurring the lines between PC and mobile.

Microsoft's next big piece of hardware, Andromeda, may just fit in your pocket.

Then, less than a month ago, Thurrot published info from reportedly leaked documents saying Andromeda could make an appearance as soon at this year, alongside Libra, a smaller, low-priced Surface, and Carmel, the next version of the Surface Pro.

Originally, Microsoft had introduced Surface Pro and Surface RT six years ago as devices which were designed for creation of a new category for challenging the differences between a laptop and a tablet.

For many, Andromeda is also seen as the long-rumoured Surface Phone, which would seem to jive with remarks from the leaked documents that claim Andromeda is Microsoft's response to its now defunct Windows Phone platform.

The device will allegedly have a foldable display that bridges the gap of the hinge when it's fully opened.

The report claims that current engineering samples of the new Surface product look similar to 3D concepts made by David Breyer (see above).

The company appears well positioned to help Microsoft bring their ambition vision, which they believe will "blur the lines between mobile and stationary computing, " and disrupt compting, to market. This is a clear indication that the company has plans to launch a dual-screen mobile device in the near future.
