2017 did not start the best for fans of mobile Windows, because Microsoft has decided to heavily restrict the sale of smartphones Lumia. In the US, factory outlet no longer sells any models, and in Poland you can buy only three smartphones with lower shelf.
With beautiful plans came to nothing. In 2013, Microsoft announced that it is buying the mobile division of Nokia, which is its most powerful partner on the smartphone market. The whole procedure had to help the Americans to increase its share of the mobile operating system Windows, as a reasonable alternative to Android and iOS. While in the initial phase it seemed that something might this be so after it became clear that Microsoft will sooner withdraw from this segment of its business than its smartphones will be selling hits. In the face of further declines in sales of smartphones Lumia, and thus more and more bad performances in all kinds of statistics, Microsoft has decided to withdraw from the fight for dominance in the commercial market, abandoning the production of smartphones Lumia. The last of them was presented in February of last year, Microsoft Lumia 650. matter of time remains a decision for the closing of the sale of what is happening right now. With US store Microsoft's gone all Lumia smartphones in the UK magazines no longer has any pieces, and in France is sold only Lumia 550. In Poland, it is not in this matter too cheerfully, as on the manufacturer website there are only Microsoft Lumia 650 Microsoft Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL Microsoft. Flagship are no longer available. Peering into various Polish shops you can also be noted that the availability of these smartphones is not the best. http://www.gsmmaniak.pl/615948/surface-phone-specyfikacja-oprogramowanie/ Do not kid yourself – it's the ultimate end mobile Windows, at least in this version, in which we knew him so far. Microsoft reversed the burden of sales of smartphones with this system to third-party (who do not relate outstanding success), when he allegedly working on a smartphone Surface Phone, which, thanks to emulation x86 processor ARM64 could work on a full-size Win32 applications. It is difficult to say whether such a device actually sees the light of day, because so far Microsoft is focused on tablets and computers ARM systems. Have you ever come time for smartphones? That we will learn only in the future, but one thing is certain – ordinary consumer market is already beyond the reach of the Americans, who rightly look out your niche in the business sector. And so, the real competition for Android and iOS, Windows Mobile has become just another curiosity for enthusiasts. Source: Neowin own study
