Think it is possible.

I think it would be a good if the eco system is there on the Windows store.

Many manufacturers have been toying with the idea of one device for mobile, work and play.
Starting from the Motorola Atrix to HP's Elite X3 devices. Even recently Samsung's S8 series has a phone to monitor dock (dEX) that transforms the phone into a pseudo all in one device

With this does it mean the surface class mobile device is finally coming ?

I guess. The bigger question for me would be, if they do go down the surface road, will there be budget phones? Or anything for those who might wanna try a windows phone as their secondary/side phone? Because if not, they'll be cutting down on their market share which is already around 2.5-3 percent.

I dunno leh. Surface phone may be interesting. But what's the incentives using a windows mobile?? Both android and iOS are already so mature with apps as well as their ecosystems. How is Microsoft going to persuade consumers into windows mobile??

Wah u are back bro. Simply said there is No reason to cum back unless they release phone running full w10. Or else really is pointless. Latest news is they have managed to demonstrate w10 running on 835 but just yesterday intel was threatening lawsuit as they claim it infringes on their patents ....
Bottom line, won't be so soon lah
Also, even if can run on mobile device, most desktop apps will look too small and too difficult I use on a mobile sized device

I watched the demo video. Interesting to run x86 apps. Good for ARM computing. But phones? There is still 1 unanswered question: how do use x86 apps on mobile devices?? First of all, the apps are not even mobile friendly. You said it bro. Running mobile apps on desktops is easy but not the other way round.

I think this only goes back to phone manufacturers being able to install Full Win10, not a mobile or half-cocked version of it - taking advantage of the Universal Apps from the Store.

As the report says......"Our products include operating systems; cross-device productivity applications" and so long as their operating system can work on a phone then the idea is not, in itself. dead. There is an irony to be thought of for Nokia to be brave enough to fit a full Win10 onto a phone/phablet and be at the front of an idea instead of last to the party.

Dude, I think its gone. Even if it comes and its a big IF, it will most likely b a full windows OS running on a mobile device. With Intel threatening to sue due to the recent demonstration of SD running full windows 10, I dont think this is gonna happen anytime soon.
