Surface Smartphones will be the first phones from Microsoft featuring its latest windows operating system software, which is already in competition with BlackBerry 10 for third position after Google Android and Apple iOS.

After Microsoft Surface Tablet launch last year, it is definitely not a secret that Microsoft wants to venture even deeper in the Smartphone industry.

Microsoft branded Windows Phone handset news are coming out by several sources including Wall Street Journal, The Verge, TechRadar and recently by All Things Digital which reports that even Nokia CEO, Stephen Elop fears that 'Microsoft Surface Phone Could Screw Us':
Microsoft may make strategic decisions or changes that may be detrimental to us. For example, in addition to the Surface tablet, Microsoft may broaden its strategy to sell other mobile devices under its own brand, including smartphones. This could lead Microsoft to focus more on their own devices and less on mobile devices of other manufacturers that operate on the Windows Phone platform, including Nokia.
Microsoft Nokia Partnership is a software hardware smartphone manufacturing partnership, back in 2011, to compete Apple and Android device. A Microsoft Phone release could certainly deliver a fatal blow to Nokia, that has put all its cards on Microsoft Windows Phone software and ditched its own software and Symbian operating system phones in favor of WP OS.
