Microsoft has been among some of the biggest names when it comes to the world of technology. The company has been a giant in the markets of technology for the past four decades, and has been changing several trends in the markets of technology the way we know them to be. The company has traditionally been known to be a heavyweight of Software and OS technologies, but has been doing quite a good business in the hardware markets too. Microsoft, however, has not been performing as well in their smartphone ventures over the years. They now intend to release a new device which will help add some credibility to their mobile phones division – the Surface Phone.
The Surface Phone has been awaited since quite a while. Early rumors have been floating in the markets since as early as July last year, and nearly a year later, Microsoft is yet to comment on the release of the device officially. Though there have been a couple of teases, most notably from CMO Chris Capossela who had commented that there is indeed a need for a ‘spiritual equivalent’ of the Surface-like device in the mobile phones division.
Microsoft, with the release of the Surface Phone, is likely to tap into the business-oriented consumers, as the device is expected to be a highly productivity oriented device. The Surface Phone is expected to change several trends in the way the markets of technology function, and is all set to innovate the path for devices to follow.
Microsoft is likely taking a blackberry-like approach here, and is targeting the niche of business-class users. At the moment, the device is expected to come out with as much as 8GB of RAM, and much more. Here are the three speculated variants of the Surface Phone:
- A Basic version with 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of storage space,
- The Advanced version which features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space,
- The Pro Variant, with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space.
