The new Phone will use Surface Windows Phone 8, probably the Apollo Edition, and will probably have a very large screen (so it will be almost a Phablet) with any chance that this smartphone will be released during the middle of 2013 with a flash announcement made by Microsoft itself.
The Surface is therefore the Direct Phone heir Windows Phone series, pretty much gone in Italy, but this probably won’t miss out on the Italian market. Probably the same marketing touch to this product as it has been for the Surface Table t, trying to want much more than the operating system and its functions rather than those of its competitors iOS and Android. Needless to say, of course, that the new Meter system of Windows Phone and it will be also included in the Phone is rather innovative Surface and makes the idea of a user-friendly phone.
Then there is that wait for some Word from Microsoft regarding the release of a Surface Phone which was assigned to Foxconn, maybe this smartphone will be easier to build for them.
