The new reports about development of Windows Phone OS are now suggesting that Microsoft may launch the Windows Phone 9 at MWC 2014.
The slow Windows Phone 8 smartphone OS development process is costing a lot to Microsoft. Microsoft has announced the Windows Phone 8 OS back in October last year, and it’s been almost a year since Microsoft has released any major update for its mobile OS platform.
As told, Microsoft will push an update called GDR2 next month and another update called GDR3 by the end of this year for its Windows Phone 8 smartphone users, but no Windows Phone 9.
It is expected that Microsoft will announce the next major version of Windows Phone OS in first quarter of next year, and may be at MWC 2014. The new version will bring the Full-HD display support, Quad-Core processor support, and many new essential features long required to the OS.
With Apple releasing iOS 7 this year and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out already, Microsoft is really lagging behind with the development process of its smartphone OS. This slow development process will automatically lead to loss of consumer interest in buying the Windows Phone based smartphones.
Eldar Murtazin of Mobile Review also claimed few months ago that Microsoft is again planning to rebuild a new OS from scratch again, which will work both on smartphones and tablets just like the Android and iOS. If reports to be believed, Microsoft will showcase the new OS at MWC 2014 to create a new buzz among the mobile community.
The Microsoft’s strategy of building new operating systems from scratch and leaving the old ones without any support may lead to loss of interest from OEM manufacturers to launch Windows Phone based devices in the market.
