    Creators Update.
    15063.14

    I don't know.. After all this negativity and following Mobile related news like crazy and then feeling sad because of how things are going, small hints come out here and there which gives me a feeling that Mobile isn't neglected.

    Something is really going on

    Something cool!

    Also check this out - A cryptic tweet by John? MAYBE!!!! He is an engineer working on Shell and previously worked on Windows Updates. Great guy!!

    Let's see what 2017-18 has hidden up it's sleeves...

    Edit - This is the Windows Central article to which John replied. https://www.windowscentral.com/micro...k-about-phones

    Tbh MS asked us for patience :p but apparently we're not patient people lol

    There will be a time to focus everything on phones, but not right now. The last quarter of 2017/ first of 2018 should be interesting.

    However, we have played the waiting game before.......................

    Well, we're really fans of this OS at the end of the day.

    We're humans. And supporting what we love is in our DNA.

    Aw that's cool! Thanks for sharing.
    I'm happy to bring a bit of cheer mate...

    It is cool, but at the same time sad that we have to look in all the nook and crannies for evidence.

    Yeah it's cloudy, windy and a slight chance of rain here, reason for my somewhat of a negative spin on it

    unfortunately guys I think windows os's on PHONES is dead, when they talk about mobile they are not talking about phones, there is a big difference. Unless they come with something solid at build this year specifically about phones (again not just chatting mobile) then I would say Microsoft os's on phones is a dead topic and move on.

    Isn't it self evident Microsoft intends to do "something" with a mobile phone OS as they have been releasing builds? If they are trying to kill it why have there been any builds at all?

    I re-flashed my 635 with 8.1 and took a walk down memory lane....there has been a lot of improvements IMO. So as the OP points out, things are still going on for mobile, and it will have a phone app.

    I use my device for a lot of other things and by comparison, a phone is not the most used app, and from what I can tell it, it hasn't changed any either - same old phone app, it is now surrounded by a lot more useful and powerful functions than in years past.

    True about not talking about phones specifically but when the word 'mobile' is mentioned no-one outside of MS's walls are thinking tablet or laptop. Why do you think Android overtook Windows as leading OS in internet use? Because of the very mobile smartphone. If MS wants to retake that then they need to stop #$^$ing about consumers and give then a platform to work with (smartphone) that those who left would want to return, and those who're still here will remain and those thinking will think less and come over.

    To be disappointed again yeah sure. Wonder what then after this concludes and the masses are still in limbo about what's MS's plan for the current mobile OS until it's revival or it's imminent death.

    They have to fulfill their 2 year support cycle. That's the reason why all these phone were cut from the Creators Update.

    I'm no corporate lawyer but aren't the phones being left out Nokia phones? Just as Fitbit is not on the hook for any warranties or support from Pebble, MS isn't responsible for Nokia's pre-buyout models. If there's any members of the Bar reading this, please chime in.

    So we are supposed to take solace in someone asking if you need a hug? I'm not seeing how this helps us get any closer to MS taking Mobile seriously.

    half empty mentality = Doom and Gloom, because MS wont not tell us their marketing strategy secrets...

    half full mentality = Live to Fight another day, MS isn't going to pump up its chest to support a Mobile device that 'they' did NOT research, design, test, produce... 100%, start to finish. I believe they know if you want to fight to win, you better believe in want your fighting for, and if your going to be a bear, your better off being a Grizzly (and the bigger the better). If they have 'any' chance to take back the dominant position (which I am sure is their intent), I would be dumfounded if they didn't realize it is going to involve Mobile (phone, or its successor) as the vehicle.

    Just my humble opinion, but I am going to consider myself as a half full person in this matter, until 'proven' wrong by fact, and not conjecture.
