    Anyone notice the SS Galaxy S8 'Microsoft Edition'? Was reading about it over on Windows Central right here.

    What do you think the thinking is here from Microsoft? Are they gearing up for a move towards Android?...

    I believe the only reason they are doing it is because of Dex. They even included office apps with the phone.

    FYI, it's only the AT&T variant, so if you're on any other carrier, you won't be able to use it.

    The DeX dock is the Microsoft-Samsung collaboration that gives it the reason of being there, but it's not clear if it will be available for sale on the 21st.

    It is only available from a brick and mortar MS store and is only on ATT in black.

    I know this is an Android forum, but I still think that they should've just made a Windows-10 powered version of the S8.

    Exept nokia, htc used to make some but haven't seen something from them in years the only other manufacturer i'm aware that recently made one is Hp. Sadly this platform will probably end up dying if microsoft dosen't do something quick.

    This is the link the OP was probably referring to. Still, after perusing through it nothing really sparked any interest to me, it's just a Samsung S8 loaded up and configured with Microsoft apps and services. But considering Microsoft still has a really strong legacy market share it is notable for those who live and work in a Microsoft environment.

    HP and Alcatel. There are rumours of Xiaomi and Cerulean possibly making Windows phones this year, but I'll honestly believe that when I see it. There may be more, but that's all that comes to mind.

    If it has iMessage and none of the other iOS stuff including design, I'd be ok with that.
