Microsoft’s comeback mobile device?

The book stated that it is a hybrid device that works as a smartphone when folded and a tablet when opened. Reportedly, the rumored device will even come with a full-fledged Windows experience with some minor trimming at best instead of a the old Windows Phone OS.

It could be Microsoft Surface class device that can turn into a phone or a tablet when needed. This device could be the all-in-one portable device that could change the way we look at smartphones and portable computers next year.

If these details are accurate, then the Andromeda could be the comeback device of Microsoft in the mobile phone game after killing the Lumia line few years ago.

It should also be a competitor for the upcoming foldable devices from Huawei and Samsung.
