We have seen how Microsoft has practically abandoned Windows Phone to its fate. Despite more than promising beginnings, Windows on mobile has ended up being a nonsense of epic dimensions. We have seen how other alternatives to iOS and Android have disappeared: Firefox OS, Tizen in its beginnings or MeeGo are history, but its defeat can not be compared to that of Windows Phone.
The problem is that although not in the same number as the iOS and Android platforms, the park of owners of a Windows phone is what it is. They are there and it seems that the American company does not want to leave them lying or not at least for now. It is the only reason that can explain why they continue to release updates for Windows 10 Mobile today when not even from the company believe in their future.
