If you're a fan of Microsoft, it's probably time to jump ship. The company doesn't seem to have a broad interest in its own mobile platform and moves lately suggest the consumer market is becoming less relevant as time goes by.
Windows mobile dying is a sad statement on corporations as a whole. When a company has the resources that Microsoft does and an R&D budget like the one they have it is a failure of imagination. There are several billion smartphones out there and you only need to take a small portion of the market to be successful. It's inexcusable for Windows mobile to have failed. It's also inexcusable if the give up on mobile.
My first smartphone was a nokia with windows os
What a mistake that was... No one wanted to develop programs for it and it showed.
Was near impossible to side load apps onto it either.
We already have a locked down system, Apple. There is no need for a second.
If you want a safe, clean and locked down mobile OS, go with apple.
If you want a more free and customisable open-source mobile OS, go with android.
