Microsoft Surface Phone disdain iPhone7 competition?
Latest Surface product we look forward to a lot of new material released, had planned to wait until the spring of 2017 it is possible to release a new generation of Surface Pro and Surface Book. The latest reliable news released in 2016, after all, exactly one year update cycle. Fans are disappointed but let Microsoft. About Surface cell phones for the future, why is it that today are little-known.
Not so fast! As reported by the foreign media ZDNet sees a pretty interesting revelations, the media said their informant got the message from within the Microsoft understand that so-called “Surface Phone” Microsoft really is planned. However, the equipment is mainly business-centre. ARM-based (non-Intel) chips. More importantly, Microsoft’s main target markets are not going to consumer-oriented. Not interacting with Apple and Android camps. But use Continuum for the big-screen features and attract more keen to mobile business professionals.
It is clear, then we can know. Surface Smartphone really developed. Release date could not be immediately determined. Combined with the previous message, must be current Surface team boss panuosi·panai (Panos Panay), as well as build the Surface tablet before. The pursuit of the best hardware and the highest quality, but the price is not cheap, aim is to focus on the high-end market. So that more small partners to cooperation on Windows10 ecosystem to create more similar products more affordable.
Meanwhile, rumors Surface referred to in smart-phones based on ARM chips, confirmed there have been similar messages before, and provide the exact chips are Gao Tongxiao 830. Although it makes a lot of love in the Intel and Microsoft once again revive hopes have been dashed. But I hope Microsoft can really play a most strong strength of ARM chip, not to lag behind Apple and Android camps.
However, rumors apparently said Surface Smartphone not iOS or Android device as a competitor, primarily designed for the enterprise market, bothered to compete in the field of consumer Apple or Samsung phones. In other words, while the iPhone and Android mobile phones constantly infiltrate enterprise. But does not completely break. Microsoft hopes to create their own myth in this market segment. Because Surface by phone with other phones do not have unique advantages.
For example, Continuum model, all Win10 meet the hardware requirements for Mobile Mobile device having an external display device and the keyboard and mouse. You can turn the device into a mini mobile “PC” through an adapter lets business people as conscientious and efficient in the Office Office. Of course. Microsoft will continue to improve the Continuum model and its functions are not only limited to the features we see today.<
Then again, Surface does not compete with Apple and Android, this is incompatible with the Microsoft Official tone. The end of May this year, also is responsible for the Surface team panuosi·panai clearly states that Surface product lines will become a real alternative in the future.
“I am very clear, our goal is to compete in the very high-end market … … We see Apple as a Surface line’s main rivals, this is the way we focus on the product. We want to give users more choices on the premium equipment space. “Panuosi·panai said in an interview.
In any case, the software giant Microsoft are fickle, want to Surface only smart phone will not disappoint.
