For the foreseeable future, Lenovo is going to continue making mobile devices running Android and they have no one to blame except Microsoft for that.

Here’s What Lenovo Has to Say About Releasing a Windows 10 Device in the Near Future – Company Isn’t Pleased With Microsoft’s Performance on the Matter

Lenovo’s COO, Gianfranco Lanci, speaking at the Canalys Channel Forum 2016 has had doubts over Microsoft’s commitment to its own mobile platform, Windows 10 Mobile. He states that Lenovo isn’t going to be releasing a smartphone running Windows 10 Mobile because he doubts Microsoft’s seriousness towards it.

“I don’t see the need to introduce a Windows Phone and I am not convinced Microsoft is supporting the phone for the future.”

Lanci also stated that while Windows 10 for desktops has been doing well in the business world, it has no plans to build smartphones using the operating system. Though the software giant has continued to state that it is committed towards Windows 10 Mobile, the only real smartphone that has the hardware to challenge the other flagships and is running Windows 10 Mobile is HP’s Elite x3. In fact, Microsoft’s recent software updates for its desktop platform actually speaks volumes for its mobile platform and after using it myself for a period of three months, I am disappointed at the product the company has created.

With the lack of applications and the occasional performance slump, I have to state here that Microsoft needs to start approaching app developers to get the platform back on track. Releasing useless updates for the platform isn’t doing anything for it, and the company is going to have to start taking it seriously if it plans to get any momentum started. Though we’ve heard rumors that the company is working on a Surface Phone lineup, it is possibly the only lifeline that the company has at this current time.

The best approach in my opinion at this current time is for the company to start approaching developers since an operating system ecosystem cannot thrive without the availability of applications. If the company can at least move forward with this, then it still has a chance to revive the market share of its Windows 10 Mobile, which seems to be in free fall at this current time. What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know right away.
