The head of Microsoft’s Windows division says in his latest tweet that Windows 10 mobile is not going to be a focus for the company anymore as the number of users is too less for the companies to invest. He also mentioned that he had switched to Android himself. Microsoft is killing Windows Phone.
Microsoft is killing Windows Phone
In the most recent sale figures, Windows phones only account for 1.3 percent of the market in the US. The number is too less when compared with Android that is dominating the market 64 percent share of new phone sales and iOS with its 34 percent share.
The market intelligence provider from IDC said:
“There wasn’t a wide range of devices running Windows 10 Mobile, so it wasn’t attractive to retailers or operators.”
Microsoft has made a good decision since it was not earning a lot of money from its mobiles. Rather spending its time and money on the software updates such as word and powerpoint would give the company more profits. Microsoft has been a renowned name in the PC industry for over 20 years and has covered its journey from Windows CE for personal digital assistants to the Windows 10. But the mobile space is continuously evolving, and clearly, Microsoft has less scope in its market.
