Microsoft Surface phone incoming

It looks like Windows 8 could soon be on your Microsoft built tablet computer and smartphone

Much like Amazon is rumoured to be launching its Kindle smartphone in the wake of the Kindle Fire HD tablet release, Microsoft is planning to launch its own Windows 8 phone after the Microsoft Surface tablet unleashing. We’ve heard the rumour of a Microsoft Surface phone before and now more evidence has come to light.

A source of BGR has learned that Microsoft is not only making its own smartphone but is in the final stages with a launch planned in the coming months. This coupled with news from the China Times of a Surface branded smartphone landing in 2013 has us tingling.
