Microsoft's rumored Andromeda foldable mobile device: What might be inside?

Many giant tech blogs and other tech enthusiasts say that, Microsoft will launch this new foldable tablet to its Surface series with Surface Note or Surface Journal, however there is no any confirmation by the officials regarding the actual name of this upcoming futuristic product. Adding a foldable tablet to the mix could put Microsoft in direct competition with Samsung, which is also said to be working on a foldable device. Rather than replacing your laptop, Andromeda would, instead, replace your phone by offering a foldable tablet with the capability to send texts and make phone calls. Eight years later, Microsoft could soon be making the Courier a reality. After all, Microsoft did cancel the Courier (image above) years ago, and it also killed the Surface Mini not too long ago.

Codenamed "Andromeda", the device will reportedly be "a foldable tablet that runs Windows 10 built with Windows Core OS, along with CShell to take advantage of its foldable display".

OneNote, Microsoft's digital note-taking app, would be the obvious centerpiece for such a device.

It's no secret that Windows Mobile is dead.

Microsoft hasn't confirmed or denied if it's going to do this if it's going to start selling hardware inside the app store for Windows 10.

Sources previously told Us that they rekindled their friendship a few months after her kidney transplant earlier this year. Per TMZ , they also went to church together and Bieber ended up back at Gomez's Studio City home later Sunday evening.

Apparently, Microsoft is working on a Courier version that might actually make it to stores. Microsoft has tried many times over the years to adapt Windows for new devices like the Surface RT or ultra-mobile PCs, but the software has often been lacking.

"We will continue to be in the phone market not as defined by today's market leaders, but by what it is that we can uniquely do in what is the most ultimate mobile device", Nadella told the Australian Financial Review previous year. And Microsoft's back-end business-intelligence services could bring real-time analytics right to users' foldable devices - just like in those futuristic Microsoft envisioning videos.

I'm curious: What would make a foldable mobile device interesting to you, readers? The Andromeda would make practical use of digital pen and ink.

As mentioned above, the device will be keeping the pen and digital ink at the front and centre. I'm unable to verify if the device will be able to run Win32 programs.
