The crash of hopes: Windows 10 Mobile has stopped in development

The mobile platform Windows 10 Mobile is now not in priority with Microsoft, and although the company promised to continue to produce test builds for insiders, now the plans have changed. This means the end of the OS pre-evaluation program.

The patient is more likely dead

To date, all major manufacturers have curtailed the release of smartphones with Windows 10 Mobile on board. Microsoft will support the operating system until the end of 2019, but you should not expect more than fixes for bugs and security patches. The last major update of Fall Creators Update also did not bring any global changes. Curiously, the current CEO of Satya Nadella initially did not believe in the success of the "competitor Android and iOS".

What will happen next?

Despite the failure of the platform, Microsoft is not going to leave the mobile market. Recently, representatives of the company mentioned the mysterious Surface Phone, the release of which was postponed countless times. According to rumors, the final version of the smartphone will receive a folding design and will work on a full-fledged Windows 10 with an interface adapted for work on devices with a small diagonal. Are looking forward to!
