Digital Orphanage or why Microsoft is leaving us

Last weekend I went to see Toruk and in the event the announcer says “if you want to participate in our show, please download the app…” I took my phone without hope and when I search for the app, nothing comes from windows store as I expected.

On Jan 12, Microsoft announces StaffHub but only gave us app for IOS and Android

I have a Lumia 1320, good hardware, great screen, works very good for me. Even Microsoft says “we are going to support our devices to the win10 upgrade” my phone was putted aside and I don’t have any upgrade.

Later Microsoft stops their windows phone sales and remove the devices from stores (I went to San Antonio and cannot found any 950XL in Microsoft stores). Here in Mexico, the greatest carrier stops to selling windows phones.

Why Microsoft stops selling a good product? I can understand that most of the cell users want an iPhone or android based on cost or taste, but Windows has a good features for me, I don’t want to put dog faces in my pics, I use my phone for work, email, sometimes pics, here music, search for places to eat and read twitter. Why can´t Microsoft help us with this?

My twitter app in Windows phone is broken, Waze remove all support for windows devices, I hope that Uber works for at least one year more in Windows.

For my work, I use Dynamics NAV and the app works pretty good, I don’t have any problems installing the security certificate, very good speed displaying the pages. In IOS my coworkers have problems to get the sec certificates, in android, when you install a certificate, the phone puts the screen lock security even if you don’t want.

I don’t want to change to IPhone, it’s very expensive for a pretty phone (I really don’t like it, it feels strange in my hand, you know, the corners) without a real office and every time they change or upgrade the IOS, your phone runs slowly.

Also, I don’t like Android, everybody says “you can do everything in your phone, you can hack the cellphone, you can change whatever you want, etc.”, I just want a phone with a familiar GUI to talk, work, take pictures, hear my music and read without the fire problems.

Maybe is the new Microsoft´s strategy, launch to the market a new product, the people buy it, then Microsoft says “we are retiring from this market” and leave the users orphan (remember the Microsoft Band? I have one too).

Some sites show things about the surface phone, specs, prices, etc. but Microsoft don’t say anything, even a release date.

I do not know if I should continue to have faith in Microsoft.

Did I need to wait and purchase a new device which maybe is going to be set aside again in maybe one or two years?

Or believe in a so called upgradable device which lost its upgradability?

I hope that Microsoft or Terry Myerson says something about the windows phone to us, the people who bought their products.
