Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile is not dead, in fact, it is far from dead if what Terry Myerson has to say is true and on the money. We’re quite surprised at the statement seeing as devices are not performing well at retail.

The software giant has only managed to sell 2.3 million Lumias in the previous quarter, and when one compares that to Android and iOS, it is quite embarrassing to say the least. A company that has been in the mobile space long before Google and Apple stepped in, is currently eating breadcrumbs from the master’s table.

With the platform taking a backseat this year until 2017, Terry Myerson decided to send an email to the employees at Microsoft where he talked about Windows 10 Mobile and how much the company is not giving up hope.

Here’s the full email first published by Windows Central:

I understand that you are hearing concerns from certain partners about Microsoft’s commitment to the mobile space.

Let me be very clear: We are committed to deliver Windows 10 on mobile devices with small screen running ARM processors.

We are currently in development of our next generation products and I wanted to reconfirm our commitment to Windows 10 Mobile. We believe in this product’s value to business customers and it is our intention to support the Windows 10 Mobile platform for many years. We have a device roadmap to support that from Microsoft as well as our OEM partners who will also be selling an expanded lineup of phone devices based on this platform.

Here’s the thing, Myerson said Microsoft is committed to ARM, so that could be bad news for folks hoping for a host of Windows 10 Mobile devices with x86 support. Furthermore, he also said Microsoft sees value in its mobile platform for business customers. This should be a clear sign of where the software giant is looking to sell future handsets.
