Windows phone is dead, long live windows phone
Can anyone translate the corporate double speak from Microsoft. They laid off almost 2000 people. Most from the windows phone division. They said they are no longer doing anything with consumer smartphones and sold that business off to some chinese manufacturer....BUT....windows phone is not dead.
They lost at least 11 billion from this whole Nokia fiasco so clearly they need to cut their losses. Their share of the softphone market is almost nothing and shrinking. Knowing their history, they never ever say a product line is dead. They just let the product slowly fade away. Is this what is happening?
I know they made some statements about business/enterprise vs consumer but that just muddies the water. Maybe that's the whole point.
