    Microsoft: Windows Phone isn't our focus this year


    Microsoft: Windows Phone isn't our focus this year, Prepares Cool Things for 2017

    Microsoft kicked off its Build developer conference in San Francisco with a focus on Windows 10, bots, and developer tools, but there was something missing: Windows Phone. A single demo of Skype running on a Windows Phone was the only time a phone running Windows 10 Mobile appeared for longer than a few seconds, and it felt like Microsoft was more focused on Windows 10 for Xbox and HoloLens. I got the chance to speak to Windows chief Terry Myerson briefly after today's keynote, and it's clear Microsoft's focus isn't on phones this year.

    "We're fully committed to that 4-inch screen, there will be a time for it to be our focus, but right now it's part of the family but it's not the core of where I hope to generate developer interest over the next year," explains Myerson. "There's no lack of recognition to realize how important that form factor is, but for Microsoft with Windows and for our platform it's the wrong place for us to lead."

    This is definitely not going to help the Windows Phone succeed. I like my Windows Phone but if MS doesn't start concentrating more on it, Windows Phone is going to become a part of history.

    Or any other year, apparently.
