The Windows Phone (Windows 10 Mobile) Future (continued)

<< Eric, these statements don't jive with Nadella's. >>

They don't jibe with them either (vbg) but although I've been trying to figure out what Microsoft has been trying to do with 'devices and services' and how effectively they have done (or not done) so since Microsoft acquired Nokia's 'devices and services business' I don't see much of a future for Microsoft designed and manufactured mobile devices running on ARM architected silicon and Intel doesn't yet have a near term viable alternative and keeps pushing the latest Atom chips out.

The Mark Hachman article for PC World you linked states "You might think it was doomed, following Microsoft’s reorganization of its phone business just days ago, especially after Microsoft wrote down the value of the business. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella put those fears to rest, however, in an interview with ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella put those fears to rest, however, in an interview with ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley."

They didn't put my fears for what is currently branded as 'Lumia' to rest even though some 4 to 6 Lumia devices will be released in a few months and hopefully will ship shortly afterwards to select network operators in select countries.

What Satya said to Mary Jo is in the article in the next post.

Cheers,
