    It's dead!

    The rate of innovation and more importantly the ability to reverse engineer competitors innovations by MS competitors also means anything MS might want to release in the future, is also not going to be a wise investment, they can't possibly announce/release any feature, which can't be copied by their competitors, while MS tries to make up for their significant disadvantage in lack of third party support with some 'killer feature'.

    Case in point is the dual screen device; samsung is first to publicly announce it, but even if MS had launched a device, so what... wait a year and the competitors will have the same features, and still have app support.

    MS future on mobile is not on its own platform.

    Where the video could have gone into more detail is the reboots. WP7 did see a fair bit of support, but throwing the developers it had under a bus, and then starting over again twice more, it was bad with WP8, and failed miserably with W10M, where most of the time, apps were just shut down rather than ported or redeveloped.

    With MS announcing Edge will be based on Chromium now, as others have said, they are moving further and further away from their own mobile ecosystem into the embrace of their competitors. W10M is dead, sadly we all have to move on at some point.

    I know, but the weird thing is I still use L950 and it seem to give me everything I need for now.
