In the recent Windows Insider’s monthly webcast, Microsoft revealed its future plans for Windows 10 Mobile. Turns out, it’s not as jolly as one might think.
One of the prominent question in the webcast was if Windows 10 Mobile when will move onto Redstone 3 from feature2, as PC builds are already in Redstone 3 branch it’s the mobile lagging behind. Microsoft replied that they have no future plans to move off feature2 for Windows 10 mobile.
With Microsoft’s plan to reboots its mobile business with a new device, this might be the nail in the coffin that Microsoft is looking for. Windows 10 Mobile development and hardware support might end in with the feature2 update, much like Windows Phone 7.8 in the past. There hasn’t been anything noticeably new in mobile insider builds lately apart from bug fixes and this confirms the above statement by Microsoft.
Being a hardcore Windows Mobile fan that I am, the Microsoft’s plan to end Lumia series was not expected at first. But seeing the constant decline in its shares and market condition, Microsoft has made the best decision. It would be pretty interesting to see, what Microsoft comes up with for its future mobile devices.
