A grassroots effort to convince Microsoft that there is a market for its Andromeda mobile device is now underway courtesy of a Change.org petition.
“All the fans of windows phone [sic] want Microsoft to release the Surface Phone aka Surface Andromeda Phone Project that has been leaking out lately with the phone screen that can turn into a tablet,” the poorly-written petition description notes. “I’m doing this petition to see how many people would buy this phone if Microsoft would release it. Money is power and if a lot of people want a Surface phone like the ones in the leaks then they will be forced into action as everyone knows Microsoft wouldn’t be able to give a reason on why not to do it to there [sic] investors, as its too much of a money opportunity to miss.”
Despite its amateurish nature, the petition has already garnered almost 11,000 signatures at the time of this writing. Cynically, one might describe that as an accurate measurement of the potential market for this rumored device. But I appreciate the effort. I just wish that the petition’s author had sought some professional help writing it.
