Like the Surface Mini and Microsoft Kin devices, from a number of sources, it appears Microsoft is set to smother the Surface Phone baby in the bassinette.
Now a new peition has been launched at Change.org asking Microsoft to reconsider. The aim of the petition is to show the company there is demand for the foldable device, with Zachary Hinski and at the time of writing 172 others saying:
All the fans of windows phone want Microsoft to release the Surface Phone aka Surface Andromeda Phone Project that has been leaking out lately with the phone screen that can turn into a tablet. I’m doing this petition to see how many people would buy this phone if Microsoft would release it. Money is power and if a lot of people want a Surface phone like the ones in the leaks then they will be forced into action as everyone knows Microsoft wouldn’t be able to give a reason on why not to do it to there investors, as its too much of a money opportunity to miss. I myself wouldn’t mind paying between $799-$999 for this phone if it happened and looked like the pictures that we have seen from those leaks.
If you agree with Zachary and really intend to eventually put your money where your mouth is, show your support at Change.org here.
Thanks Jay for the tip.
