Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has confirmed that the company is no longer focusing on Windows 10 Mobile.
In a series of Tweets, Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's corporate vice president of Windows, said the US technology giant will continue to release bug fixes and security updates, but not any new hardware. "But building new features/hw aren't the focus", Belfiore tweeted.
So no Continuum, no Surface Phone and no Kevin, as the company shifts its attention to compatible software for Windows 10, rather than the mobile platform which cost the company millions. It is now clear that the operating system has been placed in servicing mode, and existing users will continue to get just bug fixes and security patches. Belfiore explained that the company "tried VERY HARD to incent app devs" ranging from paying money to writing apps for developers. Many companies have stopped developing and withdrawn their apps from Windows Store during the a year ago. However, it has not abandoned the platform completely as the executive notes that bug and security fixes will continue to be released in a timely fashion.
To make matters worse, the move to Windows NT with Windows Phone 8 was a disaster. App developers are the key drivers behind the mobile platform strategy, even today. Back then, major smartphone manufacturers such as Nokia, HTC, and even Samsung manufactured Windows Phone devices. It seems increasingly likely that Windows 10 Mobile is simply going through the motions until its scheduled retirement next October.
