We heard last year than Microsoft wanted to keep Windows Phone 8 under wraps, as they were concerned about other operating systems stealing their features before they even launch.
Now Greg Sullivan told Pocket-lint Microsoft had a new reason to keep mum.
“We are taking a different approach on the announcements this year,” he said. He told Pocket-lint Microsoft was working on upgrades to Windows Phone but that Windows Phone was just now building momentum, and they did not want to disrupt that.
“We’re going to have an upgrade path going forward. Windows Phone 8 can evolve. We have an architecture that enables portability and is fundamentally hardware independent,” said Sullivan. “As the market evolves and customer requirements demand it, we’ll evaluate options.”
“It is safe to assume we are working on low and high-end devices, but at the moment there are a lot of meetings going on with partners behind the scenes.”
He did not want to announce that new details are coming, then wait 6 months to detail it further, before waiting a further 5 months to release devices to consumers.
The effect of this has been that Microsoft has been virtually absent from the CES and MWC 2013 show floor, preferring to do deals in private, rather than reveal their next innovations.
Jeg har selv undret mig over hvorfor der er så stille for tiden omkring nye ting når det kommer til Windows Phone. Nuvel, der kommer hele tiden nye telefoner og det er rigtig rigtig fint, men for mig personlig er det endnu mere interessant at høre hvad der kommer af features og muligheder i næste version af Windows Phone.
Når man læser ovenstående, så giver det jo god mening for Microsoft at holde tingene lidt hemmelige. Og selvom det er lidt irriterende ikke at vide det hele for os forbrugere, ja så er det jo nok også med til at holde folk interesseret. Så må vi bare håbe at når Microsoft endelig kommer med nye features, at det så er noget som virkelig rykker og giver konkurrenterne baghjul.
