Is there hope for a Surface Phone? Andromeda and more on #AskDanWindows Episode 27

This week I answer questions about any hope for a "Surface phone", whether UWP is worth it for developers, and whether there will be any deals for the new Surface Pro this holiday season!

Audience questions for Episode 27

  • Should I buy a Surface Pro (2017) now or wait until Black Friday? – Lacker20
  • Now that Windows Mobile is officially dead is it worth for developers to try and get into the UWP ecosystem? – Prometheus2021
  • Is there hope that a "Surface Phone' will be available in the near future? Or should this be our wake-up call, and throw in the towel. - Prometheus2021
