RIP, Windows Phone. Your passing could lead Microsoft to redemption.

Microsoft in early Oct finally did what it should have finished years ago: It killed Windows Phone. The smartphone handling system’s predestine was hermetic when Joe Belfiore, corporate clamp boss in Microsoft’s Operating Systems Group, sent out this tweet: “Of march we’ll continue to support a platform.. bug fixes, confidence updates, etc. But building new features/hw aren’t a focus.”

That effectively pulled a block on an unsuccessful, unloved handling complement that was being kept on life support by Microsoft. Around a time Belfiore announced a demise, a handling complement had a vanishingly tiny marketplace share: 1.3% in a U.S., and reduce than that in many other places around a world, including 1% in Great Britain and Mexico, 1.2% in Germany and 0% in China.

It was an anticlimactic finale to an handling complement that had been around in one form or another given a mid-1990s, when a prototype for mobile devices, Windows CE, was announced. Microsoft pumped large billions of dollars into a mobile efforts, and it definitely failed.

It competence be, though, that a passing of Windows Phone indicates that good things are forward for Microsoft — that is, if a genocide means that a association has finally and truly strew a audacity that hounded it for decades.
