    MS Says Windows Phone Isnít Dead, All Eyes Now on the Surface Phone


    Microsoft Says Windows Phone Isnít Dead, All Eyes Now on the Surface Phone
    We continue to support the platform, Windows boss says

    Microsoft has announced a new round of layoffs impacting its mobile business, but in an email sent to employees this morning, Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group, says that this isnít by any means the end of the Windows Phone platform.

    Myerson explains that the company remains committed to supporting Windows handsets in the future, adding that although ďthe phone success has been limited,Ē the company needs to ďbe more focused in the phone hardware efforts.Ē

    Although Myerson hasnít specifically said it, todayís changes could pave the way for the Surface Phone, a device thatís expected to see daylight in the spring of 2017 and run Windows 10 Mobile. The Microsoft executive reiterates the message offered last week, after the sale of the feature phone business, hinting that no new Lumia models would be launched, but suggesting that something ďgreatĒ would indeed come at some point.

    ďWe always take care of our customers, Windows phones are no exception. We will continue to update and support our current Lumia and OEM partner phones, and develop great new devices,Ē he says.

    It is as far as consumers are concerned it would seem. Down to less than 1% market share.

    I have enjoyed the lumia 635 and 640 on Windows Mobile 10. For only $29 they work great...I hope they can keep up the low end phones like that but it looks like Lumia is gonna be dead
