    The Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update is only coming to 13 eligible handsets | Windows Central

    You've likely seen the news by now. Cussed a lot, didn't you?

    Lumia is gone and is not coming back. Surface on Mobile or whatever they will call it is still an unknown time away. Will it materialize? Can't say. When will it release? Can't say. What will it look like? Nobody knows. What will it do? Unknown quantity.

    Cerulean is the ONLY W10M DEVICE that I know of which is announced thus far for 2017. Please, I beg you, correct me if I am wrong. No rumors. Link an announcement.

    Our phone world just shrank again. I want to see it grow.

    A list of OEMs that made WP that have dropped support for the platform includes (in part):
    1. Acer
    2. BLU
    3. Cherry Mobile
    4. Dell
    5. Diginnos
    6. Freetel
    7. HTC
    8. Huawei
    9. Inversenet
    10. Jenesys
    11. Kruger & Matz
    12. LG
    13. Lumia
    14. Micromax
    15. Samsung
    16. Unistrong
    17. Xolo
    18. Yezz
    19. Zebra
    20. ...and sadly there are more as we look farther back and farther afield...


    But this doesn't seem to bother anyone as they wait (for noone knows how long) for Surface Mobile and full desktop in their palm. And that will be very expensive in first gen and have growing pains.

    High end is fine. I agree. But a platform can't exist just on prosumer hardware. It needs low end right on through or there isn't enough base for more than 2 or 3 makers. Is that what we want? 2-3 very costly devices a year if we are lucky? Do you truly see that sustaining us?

    Hey, I like high end too. I'm currently sitting on a 1020, a 1520 and an Idol 4S Windows. What I don't have is more choice. And suddenly I now have even less. I'm investing in more choice for the future.

    It's why I'm supporting Cerulean and their 2017 model the Moment. If you don't want us sliding into oblivion, you should support it as well. You don't even have to pledge for one of the 3900 phones needed. You can donate any amount your conscience and wallet advise. Go to the page and click the "Back It" button and enter an amount.

    Well put sir. I don't think device makers are just going to start pumping Windows 10 Mobile phones out any time soon, so then instead of waiting people should act now. How they act on this is up to them. I would like to see more companies like Cerulean coming forward like they are, and it won't take much. If the rest of the committed Windows Mobile user base gave up their McD's this week and sent in the cash to the indiegogo site, even that would be a lasting impact. They are doing an excellent job thus far, taking on almost a whole continent N and part of S America as a start up is lot of work. Cerulean's First mobile phone, and lets help to make it not be their last.

    If half the people I see who are rejecting Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition on principle would put in for a Cerulean we'd be over the top.

    I saw that Wileyfox deal this morning... Now I wonder if that and the Trekstor might be rebadged Coships.

    Didn't see anything about an X3 refresh... Got link?

    Yeah, could be rebranded phones for sure.

    The x3 was in a glass case at the recent electronics show. I forget what it's called... Either way, it was an update and was just shown off without any information. I think it might have been a prototype or something. I'm guessing you can find something about it in the dedicated forum for the x3.

    I think it was brought up in a couple Window Central podcasts ago.

    You will hear more come summer, and after the CU settles. HP aint done yet. Question would remain though how far the take it, and IF they see consumers as a focus yet.
