Microsoft has made a ton of controversial changes to its mobile platform. From providing broader support to competing platforms with its newest services, to massive layoffs in the Lumia division, it’s hard to not be concerned over the future of Microsoft’s smartphone business. Satya Nadella has committed to continue building great Lumia offerings going forward, and today we hear more.
Satya Nadella was recently questioned about his stance in mobile during the company’s results conference call. When approached by Keith Weiss from Morgan Stanley on the company’s smartphone business in the long term, Nadella responded that he believes in his company’s participation in the segment. He clarifies that Microsoft defined three key areas to address with its future products. Nadella went as far as to admit that Microsoft doesn’t “have good devices” to compete at the moment, but that he expects to change that with Windows 10.
We’ve heard a ton of rumors of two new flagships coming with the launch of Windows 10 Mobile later this year. Let’s see if these new products satisfy a market in desperate need for action.
