Microsoft Confirms What Most of Us Assumed: No More Windows Phone

Microsoft Confirms What Most of Us Assumed: No More Windows Phone

Despite a slick OS, that was easy to use, easy to master, and installed on good hardware from Nokia, the writing was seen as being on the wall even back in January.

Well it appears that one possible method the team has come up with to monetize user activity in Windows 10 is to tie premium content into first party apps, specifically for now the Photos app, and that connection to the premium content comes by way of being an Office 365 subscriber.

But some home users say they have also been affected, and this may cause anyone with manual updates enabled for Windows 10 choose to hold off on installing this particular patch. In fact, CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, has abandoned his "Mobile First, Cloud First" strategy.

Asked to confirm HP's plan, a company spokeswoman responded: "We will continue to fully support HP Elite x3 customers and partners through 2019 and evaluate our plans with Windows Mobile as Microsoft shares additional roadmap details", according the e-mailed statement.

Windows Phone is dead. Former CEO, Steve Ballmer, laughed at the original iPhone when it was just announced. I can save the files and sometimes they will close ok but display doesn't update and Excel windows eventually gets more and more blank areas.

When the SDK is used with most recent version of Microsoft's Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment, it will allow developers to add a modernized installer to apps to exploit the latest Windows Platform APIs.

In all we are going to discuss the takeaway should be, GET RID OF YOUR WINDOWS MOBILE OS-RUNNING PHONE.

"Bottom line Microsoft accidentally pushed the Delta updates to the WSUS channel", wrote Susan Bradley, a community moderator.

Windows 10 Mobile build 15252 will be a month old in four days, so it's been a while since Microsoft released a new build to Insiders.

If you're still using Windows 10 November Update from two years ago, or Office 2007 or Outlook 2007 from a decade ago, you would want to upgrade to a newer version or move to an alternative solution.

This story was delivered to BI Intelligence Apps and Platforms Briefing subscribers. That's true, but bear in mind both iOS and Android have similar apps and services that are tightly integrated, which means, they'll deliver a better experience. This also applies to Sway, Microsoft's digital storytelling app which also has some of its features behind the Office 365 paywall.
