According to a report by Channel Web, Lenovo sees making Windows phones as pointless. The COO at Lenovo declared in a speech he gave to the Canalys Channel forum that the company doesn’t have Windows phones or any plans to introduce any more Windows phones devices. To him, there is no need to produce a Windows Phone. Moreover, he is not sure that Microsoft will support the phone in the future and added that Windows 10 is a great operating system and that it will be a huge opportunity for them to refresh the commercial space.

From this speech, Lenovo claims it doesn’t have any Windows phones. This is somewhat tricky because there was an announcement about a Windows 10 Mobile Phone under the Lenovo brand which was supposed to be released in the middle of October. However, this new statement makes this release unnecessary.

On the other hand, Lenovo’s declaration that it doesn’t see the need for a Windows phone could be troubling for Microsoft. While this type of phone once offered an integrated platform and a fluid interface for its users, Windows 10 Mobile does not represent a coherent or pleasant to use experience. It has smaller and smaller libraries of useful apps than Windows Phone 8 had in 2013, for instance.

Moreover, it seems that Lenovo doesn’t trust Microsoft enough to support its platform in the future. WeChat noticed this earlier this year as well after the Chinese company noticed that people are starting to leave Windows Phones and move to other platforms.
