It has been suggested many times after the announcement of the Microsoft Surface tablet that Microsoft could be interested in making a Surface phone of their own which would run on their Windows Phone platform. Given the build quality of the Surface tablet, we can only imagine that the alleged Surface phone would be just as impressive and while it remains to be seen whether Microsoft will make the phone a reality, Digitimes is reporting that Foxconn has been selected by Microsoft to help manufacture its Surface phone. According to their sources, Microsoft is set for a launch of the alleged handset mid-2013 and it is expected to run on Windows Phone 8. Naturally Foxconn declined to comment on the matter, but so far there are just too many reports of a Surface phone to ignore. Either way until we hear from Microsoft or see some evidence of such a device, we suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now.
