Microsoft CEO Regrets How Windows Phone Is Handled


Windows Phone was introduced in 2010 as Microsoft's attempt to enter the smart device arena like what Google and Apple did at the time through their Android and iOS operating systems.

It is estimated that the Windows Phone platform has a total of 1.5-1.8 million users when Microsoft chooses to stop development of the operating system, where support for it also officially ends in 2022.

Satya Nadella was appointed as Microsoft's CEO in 2014, and has made the difficult decision to shut down the Windows Phone project because the number of users is too small when compared to Android and even iOS users.

In an interview with Business Insider, Satya Nadella was asked about one of the most regrettable decisions made, and he said that Windows Phone was his biggest regret, saying that there were several ways that could be tried to breathe new life into the product, looking back on it.

Although Windows Phone is dead, technically Microsoft has already introduced another product that combines their own tablet and phone, namely the Microsoft Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 which are driven using the Android operating system.

Unfortunately, the first model of the Surface Duo is already considered to be at the end of its life, and it is not known whether the Surface Duo 2 will receive any new updates after the end of the two-year official support period.
