    Sorry I wasn't clear - I'm with you @darkmagistric - I just think the guys at that site are making stuff up (hope not)...

    In the hope of keeping our main threads clean for product discussion only (aka stop strauss from ranting about the newest software/hardware/processor/design issue) I've set up a new thred for the rants:

    The Mess That is Wintel

    That'll be one very expensive companion device. I wonder why it didn't occur to the geniuses at MS devices to add a preview screen to this device. All that energy they waste trying to convince everyone it's not a phone could have been better invested in making it a better phone. Who in their right mind is going to tote around a phone and a laptop and think of adding another "it's not a phone" device to the pack?

    Gee! @Bishop, you must work in academia 'cos that's one hell of an explanation you put up there. It puts my research papers to shame.

    Thanks (?). No, I'm just a simple country lawyer.

    I’m glad I didn’t get interested. AT&T is not a viable option for me even if I was willing to switch carriers for a cool device, which I’m not.

    I’m an ATT customer (Texas was owned by ATT because of the old Cingular days) but if it not an unlocked device it is a nonstarter.

    Besides, Panos told us it was NOT A PHONE!

    Admittedly, I don't have access to Evan Blass's tweets. But articles like this really burn my hide. Click bait.

    If it weren't for the fact that MS made the same STUPID mistake with the Lumia 950/950XL, I'd call BS.

    That exactly. They can't be that stupid.
