Microsoft restructuring for the phone

This company has hinted that it is planning to stop making its Lumia smartphones, and the latest rumors raise the possibility that the brand will die by the end of this year. Other rumors suggest that Microsoft is working on a Surface-branded phone which would be released in 2017.

As things stand it is fair to say that the company’s Lumia and Windows Phone strategy has not been a success. Both sales and Windows Phone market share have gone down since the company restructured its mobile business last year.

Microsoft has made deep cuts to its phone business and made thousands of employees redundant as part of a $7.6 billion write off after buying Nokia’s phone business. There is a chance that the Nokia 216 could be the last Nokia phone made by Microsoft, as the deal is expected to close by the end of this year.

The tech giant looks like it is still trying to figure out how best to manage its phone business. The sale to FIH may simplify matters, and give the company more time to focus on smartphones such as the rumored Surface-branded handset.

This Nokia 216 looks like a throwback to the early 2000s, but it should do a job for many people.
