Microsoft hasn't had much luck in mobile. Following Windows 10 Mobile's catastrophic failure, all eyes have been on the near-mythical Surface "Andromeda" folding tablet, which sounds as though it could represent Microsoft's next attempt to break into the mobile market. However, Redmond isn't the only company looking to jump on the bandwagon.
Rumors have been circulating that Apple, Samsung, and other Android heavyweights are looking to jump onto the folding phone bandwagon, which hasn't even really materialized beyond prototypes and blog posts. Can Microsoft find differentiation for Surface's attempt when faced with iOS and Android-based solutions? That's a discussion taking place in our forums right now.
I don't have a huge amount of faith in Microsoft to turn Andromeda into a success story, which might sound like a weird thing to say given that we don't even know if it exists as a consumer product at this point. But perhaps the company doesn't need it to be a big success, and instead, it can find some sort of niche that lives somewhere between laptop, tablet, and phone.
