The future of Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) depends on more than just PCs. With Microsoft missing its goal of getting Windows onto "one billion devices" by half, where does Windows 10 go without phones?
Why didn't Microsoft market Windows phones with the same level of aggression and passion as its competitors marketed their smartphones? And will history repeat itself when (or if) the company launches a 'Surface phone?'
Every few months, Windows phone's declining market share provokes a new round of speculation about the platform's health. The situation isn't good, but the concept of Windows on a phone isn't dead. Here's why.
Full Windows 10 on ARM has many people talking about the possibility of Win32 apps on a Surface 'phone.' But Microsoft is aiming far beyond the smartphone, and its sights might be set on a new form of ultramobile PC.
Microsoft has been granted a patent for a slew of foldable mobile devices, which the company describes as both "phones" and "mini tablets." Could this be a glimpse at the fabled Surface Phone? Time will tell.
