Steve Ballmer once again confirms they are exploring more hardware, talks about “innovation opportunity”


Steve Ballmer has once again confirmed the company will continue to explore new opportunities to make their own hardware.

Speaking at a tech event yesterday he said:

"Do I anticipate that partners of ours will build the lion’s share of all Windows devices over the next five years? The answer is, absolutely," Steve Ballmer said.

"With that said, it is absolutely clear that there is an innovation opportunity on the scene between hardware and software and that is a scene that must not go unexploited at all by Microsoft," he said.

There likely next target for Microsoft is the long rumoured Surface Phone, but of course a Surface II tablet is almost guaranteed to appear eventually.

Is there any other hardware we wish Microsoft would produce? Let us know below.
