Microsoft confirms Windows 10 Mobile is dead

Microsoft Windows and Devices Group vice president Joe Belfiore confirmed on Twitter that Windows 10 Mobile will not be getting any new features or hardware.

Belfiore stresses Microsoft is committed to support the platform in terms of bug fixes and security updates, but the main message seems to be that he's confirming that Microsoft's smartphone efforts are dead.

The software giant hasn't released a Lumia smartphone since February 2016 but some folks were still hoping there could be a "Surface Phone". These hopes are now dashed.



Belfiore admits he switched to Android and says the main reason why Microsoft dropped the platform is because they couldn't get enough support from third-party developers. He claims Microsoft tried really hard to come up with incentives to write apps for Windows 10 Mobile, but the low volume of users made it not worthwile for most companies to invest.
