A new Microsoft Surface device will reportedly fit in your pocket, come with two screens, and allow for a mobile experience that will blend the usability of both a PC and a smartphone to keep you connected on the go while still having a fair amount of computing power. Microsoft is said to be describing the device within the company as something that will forge a new path in terms of mobile computing and computing in general. Microsoft will also be "creating" an entirely new category for the device which it says will be disruptive to what's already out there and available for consumers today.
In addition to having two screens, falling under the Surface branding, and fitting in your pocket so you can more easily take it with you, the device is also said to have an innovative blend of new hardware and software which will make for a computing experience that is truly personal and versatile at the same time. Microsoft isn't too descriptive of what that means, but its versatility would certainly come from being usable on the go and having a form factor that could from the sounds of essentially transform back and forth into two different devices.
Though Microsoft is still working on this device it's rumored that it could launch sometime this year, though the rumor states it's just as possible that Microsoft could end up scrapping the device at any point in time even if the launch is close. It will reportedly look like one display when unfolded to the extent of its capability, and potentially come with stylus input as Microsoft is said to be experimenting with the use of a stylus in addition to note capturing software that could be used when you need to write something down or annotate it. The device is reportedly being tested with ARM processors, but could also end up with either an Intel or Qualcomm chip for a final product, as an earlier rumor suggests that the device will come with a Snapdragon 845 processor. So far there are no details on any exact launch dates, nor any confirmed information that it will release this year in addition to any lack of pricing.
