The future will, like always, end up with new technology, Microsoft will therefore be in front with the new technology and way for mobile devices, devices who also can make phone calls.
It means all Lumias and Microsoft phones backwards can't work on this platform, therefore they stop to spread out millions of old 950 phones, to avoid selling new / old phones who doesn't work on the new platform. Therefore we have this brake, It's the end of old Windows phone and devices, actually very honest way to treat there customers, thank you Microsoft.
Chapter two: You didn't think Mobile meant phones, right?
- write a book.
- increase share value
- destroy windows mobile Way to go!
Even if Microsoft continued with any of the previous mobile strategies, the store does not have what people want. As silly as it is, an app like SnapChat can and has held an entire platform back. Sure, you can argue that if they stayed the course, built an amazing phone with great software, it may have gained some traction. But, how much money do they dump in before it just doesn't make sense? To gain a few points of market share. Especially since the current mobile generation is potentially coming to an end within the next few years. What we think of as a mobile computing and communications device today, will not be remotely the same in 5 years.
As I said in my original comment. Do I like where mobile is today? Absolutely not. Do I understand why? Absolutely.
They failed. They know they failed, we know they failed, no point in beating a dead horse. At this point we should all be rooting them on in support of them being on the forefront of the next technology shift, not complaining about the same thing every single day. Satya has done pretty well for Microsoft since he took the reigns and we should be happy about that. I for one am excited to see what is to come.
