In recent weeks, Microsoft has axed Stephen Elop, former CEO from acquired Nokia and recent lead of their Mobile Devices Group, written off $7.6 billion as a loss from their failed acquisition of Nokia, cut 7,800 jobs, mostly in their Windows Phone business, is getting slammed with bold statements in the press such as “Windows Phone is dead. Microsoft Lumia is dead”, and still, pro-Microsoft industry bloggers like Paul Therrott are holding on to beliefs that maybe it’s not dead yet, with statements like “Analysis: Microsoft is scaling back on Windows Phone Drastically“.
Uhuh. Really? It’s Dead. Let it go. It sucked and no-one bought it. Apart from that one guy somewhere.
