Microsoft's SEC filing confirms that Windows Phone is dead
Microsoft knows that Windows Phone was a failure and has resorted to selling a special Microsoft edition of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Don't feel bad for Microsoft. After all, the company makes more money every year licensing their Android related patents than it ever did selling Windows Phone handsets.
And that leaves us with the mythical Surface Phone. Sure, Microsoft might someday jump back into the smartphone business, but we wouldn't expect it to take place so soon. It has a good thing going right now collecting on those Android patents and on the success of the Surface Pro tablet. Not throwing good money after bad is the sign of a strong company. And despite the Windows Phone failure, Microsoft didn't get where it is today by repeating mistakes.
