Microsoft might abandon Windows Phone

A hot new rumor on the Internet now claims that Microsoft might abandon Windows Phone and even Windows 10 Mobile in the near future. The news comes just a day since we reported Microsoft might be interested in buying AMD.

The rumor still has no confirmation from Microsoft but it is clear that there are big things going on at the company – first we got the AMD rumor, then we have this one and third – Microsoft has announced that a large number of employees will be laid off in the near future since the company sold a part of Bing Maps to Uber and now it closes its web display advertising business by selling it to AOL and AppNexus.

Back to the rumor – like we said there isn’t an official confirmation that Microsoft will retire Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile but there are hints that make certain people think this way. A few days ago Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, said in a letter “Tough choices in areas where things are not working” and then “We will need to innovate in new areas, execute against our plans, make some tough choices in areas where things are not working and solve hard problems in ways that drive customer value.” This makes analysts think that Windows Phone will soon go and will be replaced with Android. According to some sources Microsoft will even sell smartphones with Android and certain services preinstalled.

Well, we do not know what will happen but this summer will surely be very interesting for both consumers and Microsoft.
