What a shock!! Microsoft may be building their own Windows 8 Phone – whatever

So for the record, I believe I was the first person to call this.

On June 26th of this year, I wrote an article entitled

“Yes OEMs, with their Microsoft Surface tablet, Microsoft really did just go to war with you”

I quote from said article:

I think that for Microsoft, the Surface is the just beginning of the big push into hardware. I believe that they are being politically delicate about it because it is (understandably) a sensitive issue for OEM’s.

If this push sees moderate success, I believe they will make a Windows Phone and one or two Windows Desktop devices. Why the heck not? Once you start building your own stuff, why stop at tablets and phones?

Microsoft is a publicly traded company – there would be no rational reason to walk away from potential profits if they didn’t have to.

So here we are on October the second and now the internet is no abuzz with speculation that…wait for it…

Microsoft might be building their own phone.

LOL

WPCentral among others are now reporting that Redmond may be building their own premier Windows Phone.

They give a bunch of possible reasons why this is happening:

  • Microsoft wanted to go the Google Nexus path
  • They aren’t happy with Lumia
  • Plan B in case the launch doesn’t go well

Let me tell you why it’s happening.

Sorry, I know it’s not becoming but I love it when I see the future.

Maybe Amobidamus will be my new name.

P.S. The clock is ticking for these bloggers to be AMAZED when Microsoft reveal their reference desktop PC.

Tick Tock.
