Finally, Microsoft confirms that we already know. Microsoft’s 10Q SEC filing confirms investment in Windows Phone has ended.
Earlier this week we’ve heard that the Windows Windows Phone retrenchment to end in June of 2017. And now Microsoft has removed Windows Phone from the official 10Q SEC filling document. You can check the document below.
As you can see in the image above in the section about risks, and specifically about the return on investment, it is notable that Windows Phone is missing from the list of investments Microsoft is making. Windows Phone already have very low market share and recently Microsoft itself has proved it by rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update for only 13 eligible devices.
Here take a note that, they mentioned Windows Phone not “Lumia”, that means they are not talking about the hardware business, but they are talking about the OS it self. In fact, recently Microsoft started selling the Android device in their store, which is pretty strange move. And now removing the Windows Phone from the SEC filling surely lead us to the demise of the Windows Phone.
But in other hand, Microsoft continuously rolling out the Insider Preview builds for the Insider in the fast ring, which is questionable. We still don’t know what’s going on inside the Redmond building. Are you still using Windows Phone as your primary device? Let us in the comments below.
