Microsoft Andromeda folding tablet could kill paper at last

When Windows 10's app portal was renamed the Microsoft Store not long ago, it led to people scratching their heads: why change the name of a portal that revolves so heavily around apps? The tablet, while double a smartphone size, will boast telephony capabilities. And Microsoft's back-end business-intelligence services could bring real-time analytics right to users' foldable devices - just like in those futuristic Microsoft envisioning videos. You can take them away with you anywhere with compact and slim design and much more. There would be virtual pages available that will offer the realistic reading experience of your notes or other notes that you receive.

Microsoft's dual-screen, foldable Courier device never made it to market (with some claiming manufacturing costs at that point in time made it infeasible). There will be a whole new OS which will be completely different from the existing iOS and Android OS of the same platform.

Joe Belfiore, the Corporate Vice President in the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft recently revealed that Windows 10 Mobile is no longer the company's focus, meaning that Microsoft won't release new features or hardware for the operating system.

Taking cues from the Surface devices, this new "foldable" tablet is also said to get a stylus. The entry itself will disappear from accounts in Microsoft software, People, Mail and Calendar and will appear in a new place.

The device would have a familiar Windows setup, including a Start screen and menu, as well as support for Edge and Photos. It is a foldable tablet of sorts that becomes "pocketable" when folded.

Sadly, there is no any information regarding the availability and presence of this product confirmed by the officials yet.

In the past few years, the tech giant has been developing tablets, but they did not make it out to the public.

Of course, the odds of this being true is slim to none, but at least we now know the updates, however small, will keep on coming for some time still.
