Let us all take a moment of silence in remembrance of Windows Phone 2010-2017.
Microsoft finally admits that Windows Phone has come to its grave and it’s time to say goodbye. Joe Belfiore, the VP in the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, said his eulogy on a series of tweet that we shouldn’t expect anything more when it comes to Windows Phone.
Aside from security updates and bug fixes, Joe Belfiore assured Windows Phone users that they will still support them but not with new features or hardware update.
Of course we'll continue to support the platform.. bug fixes, security updates, etc. But building new features/hw aren't the focus. 😟 https://t.co/0CH9TZdIFu

We think what doomed Windows Phone is that it lacks applications that other competitors are intelligently maintaining. One thing also, Microsoft has not exposed Windows Phone extensively unlike when you hear Samsung or Apple. Joe Belfiore along with Bill Gates has also shifted to Android.
The truth hurts, but we are glad that Microsoft is done with denial and is on the 5th stage of moving on, acceptance. You will be remembered.
