It’s over for Microsoft. They tried hard but they just admit they failed to get into the business of the smartphone, still dominated by Apple and Android. And if you do own, a Windows Phone or a Windows 10 Mobile, I advice you to keep it as a relic of the past. Microsoft will no longer put lot of efforts on upgrading their mobile platform.
Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft no longer use Windows Phone device, but instead, he switched to Android platform. Not providing the name of the device he owns, many readers speculate that Gates might use a Galaxy S8 Edge bundled with Microsoft apps, as the device is showcased in many Microsoft Stores.
Joe Belfiore, the strongman behind the platform admitted that Microsoft Windows Phone and Mobile are dead. They put the platform on “servicing mode”, providing only bug-fixes and security updates, and that’s all folks.
Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO wants the company to focus on the future and what the technology of tomorrow has to offer, like Virtual Reality.
The Lumia sale was a complete disaster in you compare it to the dominate iPhone and Android devices.
However, for the Microsoft fans, don’t be disappointed it. Rejoice. Many official Microsoft apps are now ported to iOS and Android, namely Cortana and Edge web-browser.
