  • Nothing worked to save Windows Phone

Belfiore sums it all up nicely, saying that it was "very hard" to get more app developers onboard the platform.

These developments may also have played a part in Microsoft's move away from smartphones, with Belfiore now seemingly confirming that chapter of the company's history has come to an end. But building new features/hw aren't the focus. Belfiore has detailed the reasons for this failure, including the lack of apps, which has always leaded the platform.

Nevertheless, ZDNet says Microsoft will still be involved in the smartphone industry, as it plans to bring its Edge web browser - which is now only available for computers running Windows 10 - to Apple iOS and Google Android devices.

"Of course we'll continue to support the platform. bug fixes, security updates". Executive Joe Belfiore announced the sad news for all loyal Windows Phone users over the weekend. Now the Windows mobile boss man himself, Joe Belfiore, has revealed that he has changed to using an Android phone. Meanwhile, iOS and Android combined account for 99.7% of the market. Unfortunately, the apps were never published due to the fact that the number of Windows Phone users was quite low. "As an individual end-user, I switched platforms for the app/hardware diversity". We will support those users too! Microsoft founder Bill Gates recently said that he had switched to Android.

Mr Belfiore began a series of tweets on Sunday by discussing the recent launch of a test version of Microsoft's Edge web browser for Android and iOS - the latest in a series of releases of its core software for rival mobile platforms. The company has continued to provide cumulative updates though, despite that, for business customers that have different licensing agreements than consumers have. "Choose what's best for you". Even though Microsoft tried to continue its legacy of making it easy to shift between desktop, tablet, and mobile, there weren't just enough apps for the users. Over. RIP Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile, we hardly knew ye. It created the Windows CE that went in PDAs way back in 1996 and launched Windows Phone in 2000.
