There is a lot of speculation going on about whether Microsoft will make their own Windows Phone 8 device. The speculation comes from the Microsoft Surface tablet they are making for Windows 8. It would make a lot of sense for them to set the standards of what both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 should be. Yesterday there was even a nice mock-up of what a Surface Phone could look like.
With all this speculation and dreaming about a Microsoft-made Windows Phone I can’t help but wonder if people hold Microsoft to a higher standard than the likes of HTC or Samsung. Microsoft doesn’t make much hardware anymore, so we really don’t know what the quality of these devices would be. Meanwhile Nokia and co. are pumping out phones every year.
Would you want a Microsoft-made phone over someone like Nokia or HTC?
