These rumours got stronger after recent comments by Chris Capossela, Microsoft’s EVP and Chief Marketing Officer, who made several comments on the future of the company and the way their mobile phones division, the Microsoft Mobiles had been functioning. Caposella commented on the Microsoft Mobiles division saying that they were close to coming out with a ‘breakthrough’ windows phone device.
Capossela also commented that the surface division was doing quite well, and the Microsoft mobiles are expected to take a similar route to do better in the markets by putting in more powerful tools. He was then asked about the possibility of a surface phone, and he did not comment anything on it, but the new ‘breakthrough device’ that was earlier mentioned is expected to be a ‘spiritual equivalent’ of the surface phone.
