Is Microsoft retarded?
Saying that the Phone is dead is alright, and i have no problems with that what so ever. But, saying that there would be no further mobile developments disappoints me, especially since there were many who said that there would be a Surface Phone.
If Microsoft was to make a Surface Phone, they would be a small step forward to changing the whole entire market. When the first Surface tablet came out, it came with an RT version of Windows installed. However, as time progressed the surface eventually had the desktop version of Windows installed, where users could install any type of program from the internet.
If Microsoft followed the same path that they did with the Surface tablet, they could have made the first phone that runs on a fully fledged modern desktop version of Windows. Which would most likely spell dooms day for all laptop manufacturers.
