Surface Phone Release date
Microsoft has already confirmed that it will not launch the Surface Phone before 2017. As recently reported, mobile phones are not the company?s priority this year.
Talking about the Surface Phone, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said, ?We?re fully committed to that 4-inch screen, there will be a time for it to be our focus, but right now it?s part of the family but it?s not the core of where I hope to generate developer interest over the next year,? Windows chief Terry Myerson said. ?There?s no lack of recognition to realize how important that form factor is, but for Microsoft with Windows and for our platform it?s the wrong place for us to lead.?
Microsoft is expected to launch the Surface Phone with the price tag of $400 for its base model. The high-end model could cost around $700. However, nothing is confirmed so far.
