MS Forced To Invent
Windows 10 Mobile seemed to be a natural evolution for any user using Windows 10 on the desktop but IOS and Android devices are dominating the market. Microsoft has been forced to come up with something different, competitive and sooner rather than later.
Windows 10 Mobile
Microsoft has announced the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile. During December 2019 there will be one more patch release for phones running Windows 10 Mobile. After that you’re on your own. Even Microsoft executives have moved onto using Samsung Android phones, admitting that they were too late in delivering Windows Mobile to Motorola whom had previously launched Moto Droid.
Android And IOS Dominate
Most of the market share has been dominated by both Apple IOS and Android and they have ever increased their market share at the cost of sales for Microsoft. Windows 10 Mobile was first released in October, 2017 and is the last release of Windows 10 Mobile. The demise of Windows 10 Mobile has been a long drawn out affair over a few years now. The end of support date in December applies to all Windows 10 Mobile products, including Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise.
Microsoft is now set for the release of its new dual-screen Surface mobile devices, which consist of the Android Surface Duo and the Windows 10X Surface Neo. It’s expected that many of the existing apps available for Windows 10 Mobile will be available for the new devices with not too much code having to be redeveloped. However, Microsoft will need the apps to run on dual screens. Priority for current Office 365 apps to run on dual screens has been the focus of Microsoft however other apps will also need to comply.
