In what will have come as little surprise to anyone following the fortunes of the Window Phone of late, Microsoft's
Joe Belfiore has announced that they are halting development of their mobile operating system
Windows 10 Mobile. While he assured users that they would continue to benefit from bug fixes and security updates, new features and hardware will not be produced, essentially killing the OS and Microsoft's foray into the world of smartphones - for now at least. The truth is though, this announcement will only directly affect a relatively small number of people.
from netmarketshare.com show, Windows 10 Mobile has barely scratched the surface of the Android and iOS dominated market. After crawling up to 1.13 percent in June 2016, the share fell back down to a fairly static 0.3 percent - clearly not enough for a company of Microsoft's stature.
