With this new development, Microsoft has finally publicly acknowledged that Windows 10 Mobile is a dead platform, and moving on to Android or iOS device sounds like a better plan for these device owners.
Of course we'll continue to support the platform. bug fixes, security updates, etc, goal building new features/hw aren't the focus.
The news of Windows 10 Mobile's downfall could be down to the platform's small "volume of users", tweeted Belfiore, which prevented "most" third-party tech firms from investing in it.

Belfiore's tweets indicated that Microsoft can no longer survive in fierce competition against Apple's iOS and Google's Android.
Windows 10 Mobile tried to attract users by letting them run the same "universal apps" on both their PCs and handsets, but the concept failed to catch on.
