Microsoft's alienation of the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile OS is clearly visible and was later clarified as a senior executive stated - "We're going to do some cool things with phones, but this year phones are an important part of our family but not the tip of the spear", Windows chief Terry Myerson told popular website, The Verge.
Myerson also admitted that Windows Phone simply wasn't a channel Microsoft could use to reach a lot of customers (given its tiny market share), and that its largest install base is 9- to 30-inch screens. Microsoft's Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL devices were two of their biggest innovations when it comes to the world of mobile phone technology.
The GoPro team used to play nice with Windows Phones, providing regular updates to the app that connected the action camera with the Mobile OS from Microsoft. What's more, the combined Windows Phone numbers are minuscule in comparison to iOS and Android.
"Please keep in mind that the previous post stating that we support Windows phones was back in the beginning of December of last year, and as is the nature of technology things change fast", the GoPro representative says. However, sales haven't been as encouraging.
In the latest tweet, HTC's Twitter account said that it wasn't their choice not to update the M8 to Windows 10 Mobile, suggesting that the device is indeed perfectly capable of running the new operating system.
The next Surface Phone will reportedly run on Intel's x86 processor and will run Windows programs like Continuum and a USB Type-C port for quick data transfers.
Cortana on your iPhone? The Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile division, at one point of time, felt cursed.
For the moment, there's no sign that Redmond could change its mind in the future and include other models in the Windows 10 Mobile rollout, but there's no doubt that some users still hope to see this happening.
Does that mean you can just bring your phone and junk your laptop on your trips?
