Windows 10 phone is dead

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has confirmed that the company is no longer focusing on Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has finally said, what was strongly speculated all the time, that there will be no new features or hardware launched in future.

The news comes as Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates revealed he now uses an Android smartphone, instead of Windows Phone.

The idea is to give users of Windows on the desktop who own iOS and Android phones the look and feel of the Edge browser in new apps built specifically for the dominant mobile operating systems. Microsoft tried paying companies to produce apps and even wrote them itself when creators couldn't or wouldn't get involved, but the number of users was "too low for most companies to invest". The company representative admitted that they have closed all operations of software and hardware updates for the brand.

He then admitted he had switched to an Android phone before commenting on the role of the developer community. That interview spurred possibilities among Windows Phone enthusiasts that Microsoft was looking to launch more handsets - possibly named Surface Phone.

He wrote: "Of course we'll continue to support the platform". Choose what's best 4 u.

TransCanada won't move forward with Energy East pipeline
TransCanada's decision is also a blow to the ailing economy of New Brunswick province, where the pipeline would have terminated. Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre , who has opposed the pipeline on environmental grounds, said he was thrilled to see it abandoned.

He explained that one of the biggest issues was a lack of available apps for the platform: "We have tried VERY HARD to incent app devs". He also pointed out that 'MOST people have a different phone than "PC"'.

The Redmond-based company gutted its smartphone business previous year, resulting in thousands of redundancies.

To make matters worse, the move to Windows NT with Windows Phone 8 was a disaster.

Windows phones only account for 1.3 percent of the market in the US.
