The company’s VP Joe Belfiore took to Twitter to confirm the news.

Belfiore wrote that the company no longer will focus on Windows 10 Mobile features and hardware.  Belfiore admitted that one of the big reasons Microsoft is giving up on Windows Phone is because developers never backed the platform. 


Microsoft had many problems with its Window Phone app store and the instability to retain apps once they were developed.



While Windows Phone fans had hoped Microsoft would update the platform with new features, it’s now clear the operating system has been placed into servicing mode, with just bug fixes and security updates for existing users.


He also pointed out willingness of the company to help users if they wish to shift to Android or iOS operating system. Belfiore said, “We have tried very hard to incent app devs. Paid money, wrote apps 4 them but volume of users is too low for most companies to invest.”

"It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I'm okay with that." -- Microsoft COO Kevin Turner
