    I also agree with your comments about Cortana and the future. One of the reasons I enjoy Windows mobile is because of Cortana. I know that siri and google assistants mat be better at searching but I feel they are so dull in personality. Cortana feels more natural to talk to. I would be quite happy as you mention for Cortana to be a big part of mobile future. Especially if she is available and integrated across all of my technology. Her (2013) - IMDb
    That is such a good movie for as Microsoft alludes "natural" interface methods. Augmented reality, hand gestures, speech. There is very little touch involved. I think in that, the movie is quite predictive.

    That's definitely cool MS has gone with many streaming services. I think one of the limiting factors for the other offers on market is the fact they are locked to the manufacturers services. Although it still doesn't work for people like me, who don't stream at all :P

    The inclusion of skype is very handy.

    I hope if they are showing off the Invoke that bot intergration is close. Those two things really need to happen around the same time.

    Keep going to a big box near base and looking at all the nice shiny Sammy's (S8) and Motorola's (Moto Z) and wearables (Gear S3 Frontier). And you know what, I look at their home screens, look at my live tiles the Windows Mobile UX, and walk away. Long live Windows Mobile, best cellphone OS there is, despite everything.

    yes please, thank you. I can't understand why so many people seem to be all doom and gloom around here. We are at a great turning point in technology in which we will finally, after so many years of promisses, have a full ultra mobile pc in our pockets, and I can't wait for next year when the first devices start to come out.

    Is it frustrating that this year we basically have no new hardware to buy? Sure but I think that a few years from now we will look back at how cool it was to see the bird of the ultra mobile PC.

    I know right? I feel exactly the same way everytime I look at any android or IOS home screen (android just looks bad and ancient, IOS just looks incredibly boring and lifeless). This is why I will gladly hold on to my 950 XL untill next year when Microsoft releases it

    Call me naive, but despite the lack of commitment from MS I'm still optimistic WM has a future.

    1, Windows Mobile has never looked better nor had more promise than it does now.
    2, Satya doesn't want to be remembered as 'that bloke that killed WM'
    3, it's a part of the Universal experience
    4, MS can afford to weather the mobile storm

    So, yeah. This is why I'm not worried about the future of WM.

    We'll, maybe a teeny bit :)

    I have been noticing the doom and gloom windows phone articles. As I stated this in some form that I not a big app guy so that argument gets old but oddly still relevant. I have a 950xl and it works. I get emails I receive text messages. I like the notification tray because it works for my needs.

    First of all Let me make it clear that apart from occasions where my phone was sent to repair I have never been away from Windows phone/Windows 10 mobile. I have also been an insider from day 1 till now and have only skipped like 5-10 builds in between.

    Now into the topic of the moment. One area where W10M just kicks every other platform out of the water is the home screen. I am yet to see any better implementation of a home screen on any OS. It is incredibly informative and you will be hard pressed to find two W10M's looking the same.

    Then there is the action center which is amongst the cleanest in the business. There are no annoying banner notification from any app (Cough! Android). It is also very well laid out and now supports interactive notifications and all. The quick actions are nice and well laid out too.

    Even though W10M is a bit behind of 8.1 in terms of raw smoothness, it is very smooth and fluid and is impressive on even small phones and I very much like to believe that Microsoft used creator's update to polish out the OS rather than the probable fact that they are abandoning it.

    Android is customizable to an insane degree and that also makes it incredibly vulnerable to hackers and all. iOS is the other extreme where it is such a locked down environment that sometimes it makes you mad. W10M treads somewhere in between with good level of customizability without sacrificing security.

    I also think the real reason for WP's failure is that MS never really invested in it, they were never sure whether to go full throttle or to abandon and the platform was caught in between. The store literally S***s at showing you what you want and that hurts development. I think with all the capabilities that is available to developers now will be a good time to shell out some money and get developers back with incentives, support and what not.

    I know it wont happen but hoping is a free thing, so I still have hope.

    Crossposting I've only been a member for a few years and being a phone fan, visited on occasion long before that. The reasons I became a member was the increasing diversity of articles related to all of Microsoft products & services. Growth is important to every site. Not just for us readers but to retain great staff as well.
    Regardless of the phones status, I’m bit concerned of the growing number of phone articles & titles that evoke bitter responses from trolls on both sides of the debate. *Some never owed a MS product and claim they did, while others wished they didn't’t and some like me who will be probably be buried with something MS. God I love the Internet..
    I don’t feel current or former fans should feel ashamed to be on their favorite site but can only begin to understand the difficulty journalists have at balancing principals.
    I’ll never claim to be an expert but hope we can all find some balance because it can drive off the core.

    Cheers!

    There are a lot of developers who can create the apps that are missing, we just don't know what apps people want. We need a way to suggest apps and have developers work from that list. I can write the apps, just need some way to know what apps people want.

    I'm not optimistic about the future, and maybe that is from reading all the negative news, but I love the idea of this thread!!!! I still love the W10M UI and prefer it above the competition. It is in Microsoft's hands now to either step up or shut it down, lets just hope for the best. Like everyone, I think a new piece of quality hardware would go a long way to keeping the small fan base that Microsoft has. Even if it isn't "the ultimate mobile device" that they promise, it would be nice to have that to hold us over until then. I know there is the Elite X3, which is very nice, but bigger than what I would want. I still prefer first party devices as well, but I would "settle" for something from a third party.

    Come on Microsoft!!! We know you can do it, and we are rooting for you!

    It would be nice to see Microsoft invest in their own platform and offer some money to the current developers of the popular Android/iOS apps to get them over to UWP apps. Maybe they already do, and no one is interested in participating.

    I live and work with an iPhone and a MacBook Pro. I love them! My new MacBook Pro arrives today!!! That said, I also use W10 and W10M at work, and I think they are awesome and getting better all the time! I love my Lumia 950 XL and W10M! The app gap and the lack of new HW choices are significant issues, but the lack of loud and frequent committment from Microsoft to the W10M platform is my biggest concern.

    What do I love most about W10M and my Windows phone?
    1) Microsoft service integration
    2) The camera ROCKS!
    3) The overall ecosystem of Mobile, Desktop, and Xbox is starting to become persuasive. I hope they succeed!

    While not W10, my trusty old Lumia 822 continues to perform like the little workhorse it is. I really really want a brand spankin' new Windows 10 Mobile phone or device (whatever it's going to be called), but I'm very happy to still be rockin' my Nokia.

    Rumor: Samsung Ativ S8 (Galaxy S8 with Windows 10 Mobile) in works targeted at Spring Event launch

    https://thewincentral.com/rumor-sams...bile-in-works/
    The problem with that screenshot is that the corners of the screen on the bottom aren't rounded like they are on the top; they have a squared off bottom corner. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has rounded screen corners on the top and bottom.

    I would love to see it and would possibly buy it, but not sure it will happen. Windows 10 Mobile sure does make it look amazing though.
