Microsoft's foldable Andromeda to be released early next year

Microsoft’s Courier concept

With the hidden area still including support for Windows Hello at checkout, and other Microsoft account features, it is evident that Microsoft will soon be using the Microsoft Store app to sell much more than games and apps. While Microsoft has recently announced that it is ending the Windows Phone and that it would only deliver updates for bug fixes to the users the device, recent rumors claim that the company may, indeed, be working on the Surface Phone. I, myself, hope Microsoft might have a lighter and simpler version of OneNote in the works - the same way that it introduced the simpler and more intelligent Sway as a sidekick to PowerPoint. In addition to that, the notebook is created to mimic a real one with virtual pages that spread across the foldable device.

What was different this time compared to previous times is the fact that Microsoft seemed to roll out the update more aggressively on the release day and lots of users got it the same day it was released. According to Windows Central, it's a foldable tablet "built with Windows Core OS, along with CShell to take advantage of its foldable display". Though it will have the ability to place calls and send texts, it's not meant to be a smartphone replacement. Yes, yes it does.

When folded, Andromeda supposedly fits in the pocket, which makes sense considering it's also tipped to have telephony features.

As mentioned above, the device will be keeping the pen and digital ink at the front and centre. The Tablet would come with pre-installed apps such as Notebook that will mimics like a real notebook and with a pen, you can write down various things. As noted, it'll also run Windows 10. Unsurprisingly, the Andromeda tablet will run on ARM, shipping with the latest Snapdragon platform inside. And like a phone, the device will be able to make and receive calls as well.

The report adds that Microsoft isn't looking to compete with the iPhone or Android, but wants to open up a brand new segment instead.

If Microsoft does decide to launch it, it will happen at some point in 2018, although there are no firm launch details for this prototype.
