Windows 10 Mobile: Microsoft just put the final nail in the coffin

09 Octubre 2017, 06:56 | Bibiana Flor

Now, Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's Corporate VP of Windows, has indirectly admitted that the days of Windows 10 Mobile are probably over and people should switch to other platforms which he chose not to name.

Microsoft has been in the mobile operating system for more than two decades and they were well known for the personal assistants that came out in the 2000's.

We've pushed Microsoft for an official comment on the situation, but it's hard to imagine a time when we'll be getting a new, feature-rich Windows handset that shows off the best of the platform. "But building new features/how aren't the focus", Belfiore explained. Microsoft ceased developing new phones a year ago, but never really confirmed the reports.

One key problem for the company was the lack of apps on the mobile platform.

While Microsoft hasn't officially announced the end of Windows 10 Mobile, Belfiore's statement and the company's changing course towards cloud and services, leave no scope of a comeback.

Ultimately, it seemed that Microsoft's late entry into the smartphone universe with Windows Mobile and Windows Phone were just... too late. Are you now going to switch to Android or iOS?

The mobile developments will add even more weight to forecasts made last week by Steve Brazier, president and CEO of Canalys, who said he expected Microsoft to exit the Surface market by 2019.

In an attempt to hold a spot on mobile, Microsoft has bought the Windows 10 PC browser, Edge to Android and iOS.

The last time Microsoft had launched a mobile was in February 2016 when the Lumia 650 was released.

As VentureBeat reported, Microsoft laid off nearly 2,000 employees in 2016, which mostly affected its mobile hardware division in Finland. Microsoft has announced that it will no longer focus on its Windows Mobile department. The few number of applications have been a disappointment for the users, and that is evident in the fact that there are very few Windows Phone users.
