Microsoft has had it tough with the mobile version of their Windows platform. Ever since it’s launch in 2012, the operating system has had a significantly hard time picking up steam in the market. The world is largely dominated by iPhones and Android devices, and it seems like no matter how hard they try, Microsoft can’t break Windows Phone into the mainstream.
That being said, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Windows Devices, Terry Myerson recently sent out an email re-establishing his commitment to the platform. The e-mail was meant to reassure Microsoft’s partners that they aren’t giving up the fight, and there is more exciting stuff right down the pipeline.
I understand that you are hearing concerns from certain partners about Microsoft’s commitment to the mobile space.
Let me be very clear: We are committed to deliver Windows 10 on mobile devices with small screen running ARM processors.
We are currently in development of our next generation products and I wanted to reconfirm our commitment to Windows 10 Mobile. We believe in this product’s value to business customers and it is our intention to support the Windows 10 Mobile platform for many years. We have a device roadmap to support that from Microsoft as well as our OEM partners who will also be selling an expanded lineup of phone devices based on this platform.
That’s pretty exciting news, especially with the speculation of the a Surface Phone coming out in 2017.
Whatever “next generation” devices Microsoft has in store, we’re all ears.
Ready for the next couple of years?
