Microsoft Gives Up On Windows Mobile

Microsoft Gives Up On Windows Mobile
After years of poor sales, it looks like Microsoft has decided to throw in the towel and give up on Windows 10 Mobile.

So why have Microsoft decided this? They have tried to encourage developers to make apps for Windows but not many have done, and without the apps, users don't want the phones. Between April and June this year only 3 in every 10,000 phones sold ran Windows - Not good.

Back in 2014 Microsoft paid billions of dollars to buy Nokia's phone making business. The idea was to start making it's own devices with Windows on them. As a result they made some great smartphones like the Lumia 650, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. Then in May last year Microsoft Sold Nokia, allowing them to get back to making the amazing Nokia 3310 again and android phones too, so it's not been all bad for Nokia.

What next for Microsoft? It looks like Microsoft are going back to what they do best - building software, which they are very good at. It's just a shame it didn't work out with the smartphones.

Don't worry if you have a phone running Windows, Microsoft have pledged to support the platform and provide security updates and bug fixes in the future.
