Patience is a virtue, and you’ll need to remember that if you want to get your hands on Microsoft’s Surface Phone. Microsoft is hoping that the Surface phone can change the way we look at smartphones, similar to how the traditional Surface has changed the way we look at laptops.

It’s going to be a while before we find out, though.

Microsoft has supposedly cancelled the Windows 10 phone that was due for a May 2016 release, presumably to shift that focus to the Surface phone, which is being developed by a team led by Panos Panay, Microsoft’s corporate vice-president.

We don’t know anything about the phone yet outside of rumors. The phone shares the codenames NorthStar and Panos’ Phone, and it looks like Intel might be involved in some capacity. The Lumia metal phone which was scheduled for release in May seems to be involved somehow; perhaps both companies cleared that slate to work on this.

Windows 10 isn’t the most popular mobile OS, but the idea of a Surface phone is definitely intriguing. It will probably offer the Continuum feature, but outside of that, what could a smartphone modeled after the Surface laptops offer that other smartphones don’t? That wasn’t rhetorical! I’m excited and I want to know!
