Microsoft is making High-End Smartphone which is category innovating
Microsoft is making their next Flagship phone to be a high-end device targeted at the enterprise market, in an interviewed with the company’s Corporate VP of Windows, Kevin Gallo. He also claimed that the handset would be “category innovating.”
“We’re really aligned to what we’ve done on the Windows desktop,” he said, adding “which is we’ll lead with some high end and category innovation like we’ve done with Surface, and OEMs will go and build the breadth of the catalog.”
Meanwhile Gallo also make it clear that Microsoft Windows Phone OS have not been abandoned, and the company will push out major update for their mobile operating system very soon.
“Windows Phone is fully supported. We’re fully behind it. We’re not abandoning the phone,” he said. “There’s really no change in what our direction or strategy is with respect to releasing the Windows Phone software.”
