Microsoft has been going through bad times in the niche of mobile devices is not today, and it is almost impossible to count on the fingers of one hand the number of failed attempts of the company and, consequently, reboots made to go down a completely different path and So try to compete with the Android and iOS systems.
Apparently we can already add Windows 10 Mobile to this extensive list, because in a podcast made weekly by the Windows Insiders team developers were asked about the arrival of build 15223 for the rapid test group cycle, which just like all previous ones Has brought any new features found in the 16XXX versions available for desktops.
Responding to a direct question about the arrival of Redstone 3 builds (or feature3) for Windows 10 Mobile, the answer was a simple and at the same time despairing “no”, which closes once and for all hopes of continuity of the mobile platform Launched at the end of 2015 with the Lumias 950 and 950 XL.
With this, even users of recent and powerful devices such as Alcatel Idol 4 Pro (which began selling in many countries a few weeks ago) and HP Elite X3 will see ships, with all the news coming to the desktops and tablets with Windows 10 “Full” and the mobile version stalled in bug fixes and internal improvements.
This is something like happened to Windows Phone 7, which received version 7.8 with a look more similar to what we had in Windows Phone 8 and stayed for it, being incompatible with all the applications released to the next platform and not receiving any significant news In terms of functions until it has slowly been discontinued.
Unfortunately for those who decided to purchase a Windows 10 Mobile smartphone even after all the warnings that the system was only “surviving” at the expense of its desktop version, but only a matter of time until its discontinuity, not even simple functions like the Blue light filter for better night viewing will be delivered, remaining content with what you already have or migrating to a different platform.
As recent information points to a new reboot of Microsoft in the niche of mobile devices, this time betting on using Windows 10 complete with an interface more adaptable to smaller screens, it is only a matter of time until we see more news in this regard, and thus define If the new enterprise of the company will really be worthy of attention, since up until now what we saw was many people investing their hard earned money in something that not even the company possessed belief of success.
