SAN FRANSISCO: Surface Phone enthusiasts are running a petition on "Change.org" to persuade Microsoft to reverse its reported decision to cancel its unannounced dual-screen computing device.

All the fans of Windows phone want Microsoft to release the Surface Phone or "Surface Andromeda Phone Project" that has been leaking out lately with the phone screen that can turn into a tablet, the petition read.

"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 investors, as its too much of a money opportunity to miss. I myself wouldn't mind paying between $799-$999 for this phone if it happened and looked like the pictures that we have seen from those leaks", goes on the petitioner Zachary Hinski.

There have been reports that the tech giant was rethinking its Surface Phone strategy.

This is partially because of scheduling and quality, sources say, but more so because there's still no compelling reason for Microsoft to come to market with its current iteration of a small, dual-screen mobile device, according to ZDNet.

"However, this doesn't mean that the Surface Phone has been cancelled and it could still launch at some point in the future with a form factor that is more like a small foldable PC rather than a phone-sized device," ZDNet added.
