    Things are different now. The smartphone war is raging on but Microsoft, for the next year or more, is no longer in the thick of it.

Microsoft has strategically withdrawn from the mass market and is no longer targeting general smartphone consumers with its devices. Given that for the past five years, general consumers have by-passed Microsoft's mobile offerings a more refined approach toward a clearly defined audience was determined to be appropriate.
