SyncPhone indiegogo fundraiser aims to release their own “Surface phone”

I guess some people got tired of waiting for Microsoft to deliver and took matters into their own hands.

A team of what seem more to be concept designers than engineers have produced a video and are raising funds on Indiegogo for the SyncPhone, an X86 powered handset that would run the desktop version of Windows 10 and modern and legacy Win32 apps.

The handset would feature an Intel X5 or X7 processor, 2 to 8 GB of RAM, 32 to 128 GB of storage, 5.4 inch HD display and stylus, wrapped up in textured aluminium and with a built-in kickstand and detachable surface-like keyboard.
The handset will dual-boot, allowing users to run Android apps if they need to also.

The early price of entry for the handset is only $199 for the first 1000 backers, and the team suggests the handset will hit the market on February 2016.

On the other hand this seems to be a ridiculously ambitious target, suggesting this is not a serious project, but maybe some other companies would be inspired to do it right.
