Microsoft goes on a bender in Andromeda

Microsoft goes on a bender in Andromeda

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. In addition to that, the notebook is created to mimic a real one with virtual pages that spread across the foldable device. If a 2018 launch is planned, that means the device is way past prototyping.

Microsoft designers have been mulling the possibilities of these kinds of devices for several years, as evidenced by the company's "envisioning" videos from earlier this decade.

Microsoft rolled out the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 10 days ago, and the company is gradually rolling out the update just the same way it did with previous Windows 10 updates.

The device apparently runs Windows 10 with Windows Core OS built in, in addition to CShell. The notebook app itself is designed in a way that mimics writing in a real notebook, with virtual pages that spread across the foldable device.

Let's face it, Windows Phone 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.

The company also reports that the device Notepad from Microsoft, now has the code name Andromeda, will run on ARM chipset to support windows 10. It already works across the Web and devices and has a lot of dedicated fans.

Thoughts about Andromeda? Do you think Microsoft can make a splash in the mobile landscape with it? Microsoft's revamped Wunderlist to-do app, known as To-Do, would be a natural.

In fact, the sources told Windows Central that the device could allow you to place and receive calls. This will offer great user interface of a foldable display device.

While I am intrigued by the concept of a mini-mobile device, I do wonder whether my current way of working makes it a non-starter for me. The Andromeda would make practical use of digital pen and ink. (I have boxes and boxes of these notebooks stashed away in my closet.) I finally trained myself to type my notes over the past couple of years and have nearly entirely abandoned hand-writing anything.

So, what exactly is this Andromeda device and why should you care?

As mentioned above, the device will be keeping the pen and digital ink at the front and centre.
