With CES wrapped up, rumors are flying about a device that wasn’t announced at the tech trade show: the Windows Surface Phone.

The Surface tablet has long been a popular tablet/laptop crossover that runs full Windows; we wrote a glowing review of the Pro 4 last year.

Understandably, the tech and business communities are wondering if and when Microsoft will pack the full Windows experience into a phone. While there’s no guarantee at this stage, there enough tidbits to fuel speculation.

  • The phone will likely run Windows apps
  • It should function as a standalone smartphone AND a computer you can plug into a monitor and other peripherals
  • It may allow you to switch cellular data providers on-the-go with the Cellular Data app
  • It will likely be a large phone with a 5.5-inch screen and beefy specs

Stay tuned for more news about top-of-the-line devices!
