“Microsoft will focus on fewer phone models. Instead of flooding market with Windows Phone devices, it will create specific devices that will offer specific experiences. For example, in the high-end market Microsoft is set to offer one device that will appeal to power users. At the same time, it may come up with a mobile that would be targeted only at enterprise customers.” Vineet Durani said.

“In the near term, we will run a more effective phone portfolio, with better products and speed to market given the recently formed Windows and Devices Group. We plan to narrow our focus to three customer segments where we can make unique contributions and where we can differentiate through the combination of our hardware and software. We’ll bring business customers the best management, security and productivity experiences they need; value phone buyers the communications services they want; and Windows fans the flagship devices they’ll love.” Satya Nadella wrote.
