Microsoft has been a company which has been around the markets of technology long enough. The company has been around for such a long time that they understand the very intricate details about the way the business works. The company not only focuses on the technology aspect of things, but also the business aspect. Microsoft realizes that they need to not only be a strong tech firm, but also a strong business firm, and the company is now looking forward to make a bold business decision, as they might be working towards shutting down the Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone division for good.
Microsoft was very ambitious about their hardware projects and in this wave of optimistic ambitions they took over Nokia’s mobile phone division. However, over the years, things looked like they were slowing down for Microsoft Corporation, as the Windows Phone and the Windows 10 Mobile OS division came down to stagnating standstills. The devices barely moved in the markets, and everyone was alienating them.
Apps were falling, app makers were not willing to create or update their apps, and users showed a complete lack of interest. The Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile division, at one point of time, felt cursed. Microsoft is now making the right business move and is looking at a possibility of shutting down the operations of their Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile division.
During the Build 2016, the company did not have anything to do with the Windows Phone or the Windows 10 Mobile OS, and instead focused more on other aspects of the Windows spectrum. Microsoft’s alienation of the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile OS is clearly visible and was later clarified as a senior executive stated 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.
