Windows 10 Redstone 2 could coincide with MWC 2017 Surface Phone release

Citing the Windows Phone's superior security over that of Android and iOS devices, the department feels that they made the right call in choosing the handset.

That deployment is complete as of this week: All 36,000 NYPD officers are now rocking a Lumia 830.or a Lumia 640 XL.running the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.

Earlier, there were rumors that the new Surface Pro would arrive with the option of either 2K or 4K resolution, representing another welcome addition to the 2-in-1 device.

After switching to smartphones, the NYPD has already seen tangible benefits. It's not the latest iPhone or the Google Pixel. A rechargeable battery may be introduced with the new Surface Pro. It has also indicated that the fifth iteration of the beloved hybrid tablet may tout a similar or even a slightly higher price tag in comparison to its predecessor.

The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL and 830 units that the department is now using run on an outdated Windows 8.1 operating system. The Surface-branded handset was supposed to be launched spring next year so Microsoft can add features from the Redstone 2 update on the Windows 10 software.

As such, the Surface Pro 5 is not expected to be unveiled until sometime in 2017. Cortana will be able to contextually sync files, tabs, apps and more between devices.

On Oct. 26, Microsoft will hold a huge media event that will supposedly focus on the Windows 10 and other devices that the company will be unveiling. The firm says "no job is too big for the productive Jade Primo..." In what other ways have the phones been useful? Microsoft's latest device has a contemporary design.

One of those apps is 911. On the other hand, developers are not building apps for Windows mobile because its few number of users doesn't justify the effort.

The Microsoft Surface concept phone offers up a kickstand so that it can stand up along with a camera on the back that is discrete and a stylus. At the very least, Microsoft would try to make the Surface Phone compelling enough to be a second phone that serves an important function in daily use.
