Acer Jade Primo with Windows 10 Mobile gets the spotlight in new previews
One of the biggest announcements at last week's IFA 2015 trade show in Berlin was the Acer Jade Primo, am upcoming high-end Windows 10 Mobile smartphone that supports its Continuum feature. Two media outlets managed to get up close with a prototype of the Jade Prim during IFA.
The Italian site HDblog.it posted a hands-on video of the Acer Jade Primo, but didn't show the phone's Continuum feature in action, which will allow owners to use it like a Windows 10 PC with a hardware dock. GSMArena got some up close images of the smartphone and offered some opinions on its physical case:
The Acer Jade Primo will have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and a 21MP rear camera. The company has yet to offer a specific release date for the smartphone.

Your word into 75%'s ears...
But since the construction concept looks exactly the same than Microsoft's entry level devices, I don't see where such a much welcomed surprise should come from.
I don't know why Samsung should bring a Windows 10 Mobile device, now that Satya Nadella has given away everything he could use to pressurize (patent fees) or "bribe" (desirable Microsoft services) Samsung into making a phone running Windows 10.
Which means other people are out of luck...
Care to share the source of your statement, that the people prefering onscreen buttons are in the majority?!
I read somewhere, maybe here at Windows Central, that this is part of the Windows 10 design principles. Microsoft wants to make a distinction between "people" (round) and "stuff" (square).
