Despite the fact that Microsoft has reiterated its commitment to Windows phones on several occasions so far, there are people out there still questioning the company’s mobile strategy, criticizing especially the rather tight-lipped approach that leaves us with almost no clue as to what’s supposed to happen next for those still part of the ecosystem.
Rumor has it that no other Lumia devices will be released, with Microsoft deciding just to support the Windows 10 Mobile ecosystem and to focus on what could be the Surface Phone, a flagship device coming as soon as the spring of 2017.
In the meantime, Microsoft claims that Windows 10 Mobile is still alive, but this still doesn’t stop CEO Satya Nadella from admitting that the company failed in the mobile industry.
In comments made after announcing the acquisition of LinkedIn, Satya Nadella has explained that Microsoft is still focused on mobile efforts, even though the previous strategy failed.
“It is no question that we really missed the mobile one, therefore we understand it, we have a particular position in mobile today which is more about enterprise and where we can have more security, more management, more productivity, we will focus on that, but we are on to the next big thing,” he says.
