    Basically, when I open Microsoft's own news app it is flooded with articles telling me that MS is now in the final stages of closing down Windows phones as a concept and moving out of phones all together. This is the message from MS's own news platform. They didn't write the articles, but they do curate them. I think the message is now pretty clear. Whether this is what they are doing or not might still be a point of discussion amongst us fans but the message MS is communicating right now is very clear. Just waiting for confirmation that the Surface phone is cancelled and then, sadly, I'll have to look beyond Windows for a phone. Wish it was otherwise, but wishes won't get me a Surface phone.

    Well, according to the internal memo post in this article, the 2nd part of the strategy catches my eyes:
    >>We always take care of our customers, Windows phones are no exception. We will continue to update and support our current Lumia and OEM partner phones, and develop great new devices.

    Continue to develop new device? Should we believe in this?
