Nadella talks about “most ultimate mobile device”, “structural innovation” in the phone arena

In a recent interview to Financial Review (Australia), Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has reiterated Microsoft’s focus to find that “most ultimate mobile device”. Microsoft, as per Nadella will not play in the market defined by major Smartphone leaders.

“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,” he said.

This is not the first time however that Nadella has talked about bringing something category-defining to the table, when it comes to Phones based on Windows 10 Mobile. In a previous Interview he talked about creating Phone Categories with “some new form, new function, new value added”. We also reported about Terry Myerson talking about Windows 10 Mobile Devices with ARM chips and cellular connectivity.

He referred HP Elite X3 as one of the examples of structural innovation pursued by Microsoft.

Referring to HP’s Elite X3 device, which is part smartphone and part mini Windows PC, Mr Nadella said Microsoft was already present in “structural innovation” in the phone arena, and was focusing on productivity, management and security in mobile.

“We don’t want to be driven by just envy of what others have, the question is, what can we bring? That’s where I look at any device form factor or any technology, even AI,” he said. 

We have reported via our sources that Surface Phone may not be just another phone but a 3-in-1 form factor device in itself. We recently reported that Microsoft may be have finally found a way to make X86 apps to run on ARM64 Windows 10 Mobile devices. 

We have reasons to believe that upcoming Snapdragon 830 / 835 processor will have  capability to support such level of virtualization. Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 3 will not only bring 64-Bit architecture for Windows 10 Mobile, but will also enable X86-on-ARM64 -Emulator.

    I suppose most people buy whats avaible here and now, even in the business space. And in my work its mostly iPhone even if we got Windows PC.s

    If the Surface Phone or whatever this ultimate mobile device ends up being has the SD830/835 SoC with x86 emulator then that will be the true test to see if a phone/mini tablet/handheld computer model that the x3 is trying to pull off has any legs to take off in enterprise where this will be the target demographic.

      Target demographic….the universe LOL, seriously, it’ll cover almost all enterprise needs, putting BOYD immediately on the death bed, next up Android, they will leak users who really yearn that ultimate device. Apple users have been kicked in the teeth of recent with the sub-par (no Jobs) Apple offerings. MSFT is poised to make a proper dentin the market should they pull they off. The anticipation maybe more than we think !
