It is sad to say but it looks like this might be it for Windows Phones.
Paul Thurrott has stated that the company's intention is to slowly pull back from the phone market until June 2017 and apparently the company is not getting any revenue from the phone segment. Everything seems to point towards the extinction of Windows Phones.
Sad but true. As in case of technology the out dated can not survive. Regular updates and buzz keeps it going.
