Windows 10 Redstone 2 & Redstone 3 Updates to Focus heavily on Mobile Phones
Microsoft is reportedly scheduled the Surface Phone launch in April 2017. More interestingly, for the first time we hear of a Redstone 3 update for Windows 10 and mobile through multiple valid sources. According to wincentral both Redstone 2 and Redstone 3 are going to be heavily focused on “innovation around mobile phones.”
Terry Myerson’s stated :
“Redstone 2 and 3…to be heavily focused on mobile phones”
All of this news lines up with Terry Myerson’s often-cited quote from the Verge that Windows Phone is not a focus for the company this year. In that quote, Myerson notes “there will be a time for it to be our focus” and that looks to be in 2017 with these Redstone OS updates.
In other words, Microsoft is prioritizing Windows 10 and the mobile version will get its due. They are not, however, abandoning the platform as has been interpreted by some in the press.
