We've all known it for years, what with it's dwindling market share and lack of support, but Microsoft has finally admitted that Windows Phone is dead.
Deader than the Norwegian Blue.
In a series of tweets Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has confirmed that the company will no longer be actively working on Windows Phone, or its sort-of successor Windows Mobile.
Of course we'll continue to support the platform.. bug fixes, security updates, etc.
But building new features/hw aren't the focus.
