Chime in: Would Andromeda be enough to get Microsoft back into mobile?

Microsoft's Andromeda project, which is essentially expected to be a foldable Surface device that can fit into your pocket, has a lot of people excited. A foldable display, a new version of Windows 10 built on Windows Core OS, and telephony capabilities are sure to shake things up in the mobile world.

Microsoft 'Andromeda:' Everything we know about the rumored foldable device

Windows Central forum member Mark Kaplan recently created a thread asking whether others think that Andromeda can be enough to pull Microsoft back into the mobile market.

This is my opinion and my opinion only. I'm excited about Andromeda. Yes yes I know. Microsoft could yet do it again. Get me all hyped up for a year or two and then move on to something else. I know all this yet I am excited anyway. Why? Because I MISS MY WINDOWS PHONE! I've been on Android for about a year now. Forced to move because I needed my sons Dexcom app which of course was not available...

Kaplan mentions that he is still wary of Microsoft pulling the plug on the project before it hits primetime, but he can't help being excited. Android just isn't cutting it, and everything else he owns lives in the Microsoft ecosystem. The new hardware should undoubtedly be impressive, but the return of some sort of Windows phone is what has a lot of people buzzing.

Whether or not Microsoft ever does release Andromeda is still up in the air, but if it does come true, do you think it can be used to bring Microsoft back into the mobile fray? Will you be jumping back in, leaving Android or iOS? There are already a number of replies, but we want to hear from you!
