Now with Windows 8 running around, the statement has raised expectations of Microsoft fans who are eagerly waiting for a Microsoft branded smartphone. In addition to its upcoming Surface tablets,  release on October 25, Microsoft is in the late stages of developing its own smartphone as reported by BGR and China Times.

It is believed that the device would be released in early 2013, and would also be branded as Surface.

So this could be a big turning point for Microsoft? We think so!
