Isn't it amazing, a software giant like Microsoft completely killed their phone business and totally forgot about this page while doing so?? I mean doesn't it sound suspicious?
I have yet weirdest feelings about this. Don't know whether I should be excited about it or be angry that it is still in rumors?
MS its unifying this platform so much its turning into a black hole.

Unless there is apps like android and ios has, their won't ever be room for other os. No matter how fast and stable the os is.
Well, a sinking ship is always welcome to waste their money on death ;-)
If it's true than it's good news.
Windows has been a good platform, running smoothly at a minimal hardware and reliable. I still use Lumia 630 and 520. Except front cam, both the devices are still good performers.
I would be happy if windows return to mobile world. Maybe apps store is not rich in numbers like Android, but it had enough apps to be productive and social ( and usual calling and messaging)
I am hopeful
I take "windows phone is dead" differently.
Windows on ARM, CShell, Andromeda, Continuum, UWP bridge, etc.
Since Microsoft is working on unifying the OS, the existence of Windows phone specific OS doesn't make sense in the first placeĀ should be shut down.
I won't be surprised if a small windows 10 device with phone capability shows up on 2018 (whatever we call it)
I think that's what Nadella is up to
I never had any problems with WP10 it suited me ok it had a lack of apps but apart from that a very fluid OS the handsets well I had a multitude of them dating back from Nokia to the MS takeover last models I used where 550 and 650 with my actual preferred out of the two was 550, although people slated MS Lumia none of the handsets did me a disservice
Seems to be the path Microsoft takes nowadays. They are growing Windows into UWP so putting out a new device to showcase/test a newer platform/feature will happen inevitably/eventually. Just like when the 2 in 1s hit the scene 4 yrs ago or so and the surface debut occurred...of course RT was bad decision or idea, seems W10 has got a better hold. Now we can see what Andromeda/WC/W10 will hold going into the future.
If it's dual bootable to Android/Windows I'm in. OTHERWISE.
Kill it with fire!

When windows 8 or 8.1 had best ex... moreIt is near impossibility competing against iOS and Android in the current scheme of things. Microsoft tried and failed. Only if they could manage to develop a completely new user experience that position them uniquely in the market and develop its own ecosystem by itself (meaning, a new standard) people will be skeptical with their attempt to penetrate over crowded space(especially, premium. Segment they can't compete at price or features with major players).
Too many failed attempts by Microsoft! Ditched those who had invested in the ecosystem and ran away like bad losers. They need to consolidate all App behaviour into their pre-installed apps and try to market it. Do not expect app developers to invest time in this ecosystem until Surface Mobile gets 20% market. For example, A fantastic Camera App with OCR, Vedio,Audio, Picture editing at pro level, scanning tool, imprint tool etc, practically eliminating the need of a dedicated app could accelerate the adoption levels. But knowing Microsoft, they would go after enterprise first and might take all the convoluted rout before becoming irrelevant. Hope NOT!
Microsoft should have done.....what HMD Global is now doing....
Launch Nokia phones....with stock Android...and promise to users with 2 years of android update
Though....rivals....experts....people....would have been laughing and saying "Look...they are using Android....can't they use their own OS"
But would have dented their image.....in the end....it is $$$ which matters.
Look....what Blackberry is now doing.
Learn MS....adapt and move on
To Satya Nadella! Hi, why you didn't support latest Lumias!? When windows 8 or 8.1 had best experience for windows users! Why you didn't think about graceful and full to the brim like this (Google play) windows store!? Why you didn't good response to windows users requests!?? Man! Please do something just because we've only two ecosystem! World of smart phones has needs to more and more innovation but before innovation had needs to breaking monopoly!! iOS and android are alone it's not good! Give us strong third player and do change kind of game
