Financial reporting of Microsoft Office Revealed a particularly bleak picture of the company's mobile operating system, and some believe that this is the beginning of the end for the entire enterprise, which has only recently moved to 10
Microsoft has recently introduced the Her official economic report For the last three months of 2015 (the so-called company's second quarter financials), it had a lot of positive news for investors with profits of about 2016 billion based on 6.3's revenue - but also one very sad figure Related to smartphones.
while That the prestigious Surface business Of the technology giant continued to grow tens of percentage points to the level of revenues of 1.35 billion, the company's smartphones business, launched in the quarter in question the 10 mobile windows system that continues the path of Windows Phone 8, crashed at about 49 percent.
In other words, despite the launches of Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Microsoft has managed to sell only about 1 million smartphones based on Microsoft Windows In the last three months of last year - about one percent of all smartphones sold worldwide at this time, and the same amount as Samsung and Apple each sell alone within four to five days.
This depressing figure, along with the simple fact that Windows 10 Mobile was unable to convince the industry's leading manufacturers to return to Microsoft's lap (manufacturers such as Samsung, HTC and LG have no plans to launch devices with the updated system), brought several articles that surfaced across the net and talked about Microsoft giving up now On its ambitions to return to serving as a major competitor in the smartphones world - or at least turn its efforts to the same smartphone that the network is full of rumors about, Windows 10 "real", with chips x86 And extensive software support, as a single platform for small devices.
Microsoft undoubtedly has the resources to continue competing with Android andiOS Even without proper revenues and profits, and it will probably continue to do so in the immediate future - but we certainly hope that the giant company is already preparing the drawer plans for the day when the era of Windows Mobile will have to end, having no choice.
