While it is well understood that Windows 10 Mobile as a platform has no future as Microsoft has all but refused to develop it further. But Microsoft has not admitted this officially either by refusing to comment or by throwing some PR jargons here and there.

But now it comes from none other than Joe Belfiore that Microsoft has already given in and has accepted the ultimate defeat of its Mobile platform.

There will be no new features and hardware for Windows 10 Mobile. All Windows 10 Mobile users can hope for now are only bug fixes and security updates.

This is still not the complete picture though as Microsoft is already working on new first-party mobile hardware that will be powered by the Andromeda or Windows 10 on ARM with CShell. You can read more about Andromeda here.
