Rumors should always be taken with a grain of salt, but you shouldn’t ignore them entirely. A new rumors from leakster MSFTNerd claims that Microsoft is actually preparing to kill of Windows Phone and will instead offer Android with some of Microsoft’s own apps and services pre-loaded. It’s not the most likely rumor, but with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s recent mission statement, anything could be possible. 

Microsoft is going through some big changes right now: it just sold part of Bing Maps directly to Uber and it seems like Windows Phone may soon be up for a change as well. Rumours are suggesting Satya Nadella and his Senior Leadership Team are discussing the option to drop Windows Phone from the mobile phone line and smaller tablets. According to leakster MSFTNerd Twitter account Microsoft would instead offer Android with particular apps and services pre-loaded. Take all this with plenty of salt, but it wouldn’t be the most unlikely thing to happen – especially as it comes just days after Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella sent staff a mission statement affirming that the company must “make some tough choices in areas where things are not working.” Microsoft previously made a deal to pre-load services on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge including Skype, OneNote and Office apps. The new rumours suggest Microsoft and Google would partner in a deal that would see the latter develop specific versions of Google Maps, YouTube and Search for the Microsoft desktop OS.

  1. They are not dumping windows phone read HERE, TECHI, ALONG SIDE WITH OTHER IDIOTS WHO BELIEVE THIS FROM REPORTERS THAT LOWERED THEIR QUALITY OF JORUNALISM ON REPORTING BASELESS RUMORS AND LIES, I AM VERY ANGRY OVER THIS SHIT, I EXPECTED BETTER WITH VIABLE SOURCES. LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE HERE

    FROM FORBES:

    SECONDLY
    Windows Phones are increasing market share in Europe. Where UK here since WMPOWERUSER is based, have 10% of WP marketshare and Microsoft is that Windows Phone managed to overtake iOS in Italy, where it has 13.9 percent of the market, while iOS is now powering only 13.8 percent of the smartphones in the country. Windows Phone is also getting closer to iOS in France, with a share of 11.1 percent, versus 17.2 percent for Apple’s platform.

    Thirdly, Windows 10 is the plan to boost Windows Phone, by killing Windows Phone, you are essentially killing Windows 10 altogether, because its universal and its part of mobile first and cloud first from Satya which he will simply not do ever. WP like it or not its the part of the fundamental piece in mobile for them

    Windows 10 for mobile is going to launch with flagships, devices from OEMs and tablets and band 2 wearable is coming too that will add to the Windows 10 portfolio since it runs the core and the same OS.
    So your MSFTNerd is a liar and has no credibility of facts making up Bullshi*, OH MS WORKING WITH GOOGLE WITH RELATIONSHIP AND GOOGLE PLAY SERVICE ON WP AND MS KILLING WP FOR ANDROID PHONES AND TABLETS, MOST PATEHTIC STATEMENT WITH NO BACK UP OF FACTS, JUST RUMOR C(8*P CREATED WITH CLICK BAITS, ANYONE ON SOCIAL MEDIA CAN MAKE UP SHIT JUST LIKE THAT ABC 123 AND GULIABLE JOURNALISTS WILL PICK IT UP BECAUSE SOME WANT TO BELIEVE THE PLATFORM IS DEAD,

    The three evidence is shown here ABOVE. Why believe such buffoonery. Only a fool will believe that MS will kill WP for favour of crappy android. Some below in this comment thread. There is no doom for Windows Phone period, the name of the OS may change, but MS is not going out of the mobile arena ever. BTW What does Android appeal to MS nothing at all, continuum is the future productivity for Microsoft and Windows Phone caters that well fusing PC to mobile in the mobile first world and its their vision and core product, not just a showcase platform for Microsoft, why would MS kill the largest core product windows which they have been working on for three and a half decades as their lineup products and with the resources they spend billions on improving these operating system that is the heart of Microsoft . Anyone believe this BULLNULL rumour from MSFT Nerd with no creditability and source, just spewing opinions and false rumors not FACTS!, so called he has close contact with Nadella and Microsoft senior ship team lol, is dumb as rocks. Read between the lines between his bull*****t. Did you know I spread the facts on twitter to him, we got conflicted and he lost the argument and then he blocked me from twitter for saying the TRUTH, not spreading BULL
