  • Nice
  • Last week the first Surfacebook getting firmware updates, when the Lumia's 550, 650 and 950/XL are getting new updates?
  • Monthly security updates for the phones
  • Never as all Windows 10 Mobile based phones are receiving security updates and critical patches only.
  • You guys are still flogging that dead horse? MS threw out the baby with the bathwater ages ago. I Miss my 950xl but Samsung S9 is my new home.
  • I wonder when the Surface Studio will get a refresh. And for that matter, I wonder if any future Surface products will have an AMD Ryzen part (possibly with vega, seems that would be a good candidate for surface pro).
