Windows Mobile is 'no longer a focus' for Microsoft


"But building new features/how aren't the focus", Belfiore explained. In these Tweets, he was answering questions that other users had about the devices and what is coming in the future. The mobile OS we don't often hear much about though is Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile.

Windows 10 Mobile OS is the successor of Windows Phone 8.1 and it was included in Microsoft's plan of unifying all Windows platforms across multiple devices. There will be no new features or hardware.

When asked by a user whether it is "time to leave Windows Mobile platform", Belfiore tweeted back, "Depends who you are". As an individual end-user, I switched platforms for the apps and hardware diversity. "Choose what's best for you".

But no one at Microsoft, not even Bill Gates officially admitted the death of Windows mobile.

In support of Fire Prevention Week, the OSFM encourages all Kansas households to develop a plan together and practice it. Rick Snyder designated October 8-14 as a time for citizens to re-evaluate what they would do in the case of a home fire.

Belfiore also wrote about how Microsoft tried to get more devs to write apps for its mobile platform, but the low volume of users seemed to discourage companies from investing their resources.

In another Twitter conversation, Joe Belfiore said " We have tried very hard to persuade app developers.

The company will no longer launch new mobile phones or work on any new project related to it.

Google's Android operating system and Apple's iOS dominate the smartphone market. Many companies have stopped developing and withdrawn their apps from Windows Store during the a year ago.

Deadmau5 was caught off guard though when McDonald's chose to bring back a limited-quantity amount of the sauce this past weekend. Maybe it was for the best that Oklahoma didn't have the luxury of lines and anger at many McDonald's restaurants on Saturday.

A major shortfall in the life of Windows Mobile has been the lack of apps which compelled users to move away.

It wasn't that the technology itself was bad, but when competing in a marketplace dominated by Android and iOS, there was little chance of standing out, according to Jack Gold, principal analyst at J. Gold Associates. Skype and WhatsApp had also withdrawn their services from phones run on Windows.

Microsoft's recent strategy in the mobile space has focused around bringing its software products to Android and iOS. For a long while, Windows-powered phones have accounted for just a percent or two of all phones sold and developers simply didn't want to write apps for a tiny minority of users.
