    I don't think MS has any interest in those types of phones. Expect them to concentrate on WP OS only. Expect Asha to die.

    Did you expect anything else?

    I'm only guessing, but I have a feeling that they will focus only on WP

    Aren't they using the Asha series as a way to promote WP8, or something along those lines?

    According to Nokia, MS plans to continue Asha. But the belief is that in the future, every phone will be a smart phone.

    In order to get those Asha users to choose WP in the future, Microsoft plans to bring versions of Skydrive, XBOX and Office to Asha. That's pretty awesome for a phone that's considered a "feature phone."

    Of course the versions of Skydrive, XBOX, and Office will probably be pretty bare bones and simple. But it's still pretty cool.

    So not only is Asha going to still be supported; but MS is going to give Asha users some awesome apps.

    Sell feature phone business and get some cash or stock in return, invest in WP and windows merge.

    i think they wl convert asha series from a sub- smart phone to a full features ultra low end smart phones.. And thus they fight against very low end android craps like galaxy y micromax xolo sony tipo and so on....

    Nokia sells less Asha phones than Lumias at this point, they should just kill them off and keep on bringing 520-like devices onto the market

    I feel like Microsoft has tried features phones already... If im not mistaken, it was a big hit, with record sales or something like that!

    Microsoft can support low end phones by not having to pay any licensing fees since they own the OS and the phone. Great way to get WP visability in under developed countries.

    I doubt they will kill it. They will likely use it to serve their bigger plan and spin it off to someone. From what I've read it's a popular device and has value associated with it.

    Asha is dying due to Smart phones in general. MS will kill it when it is no longer a viable business (5+ years).

    It would be foolish for them at this stage. Its a wait and see game from here on.

    Asha phones are the biggest selling feature phones in India.Killing Asha means killing the feature phone market in India.Samsung will become the new leader even in feature phone category.
