Microsoft will abandon its Surface lineup until 2019. Quietly, this is not the official information. In any case, such a statement is at least a few leaders from the PC industry and president of Canalys.
During the 10th edition of Canalys Channels Forum conference in Venice, Canalys president Steve Brazier said that Microsoft would abandon the device. All because Redmond's CEO, Satya Nadella, described it as "a guest on software and solutions in the cloud." In support of his opinion, he added that Surface devices have good times and bad times, which in turn makes Microsoft not earn as much as it should. In the end, business in this business does not give the company any meaningful benefits. Interestingly, the above statement was also supported by Gianfranco Lanci, COO of Lenovo. According to him, Microsoft may abandon the creation of PC hardware until 2019. Dell's COO, Marius Haas, said that the Redmond-based company could halt development in this area. Besides, creating a wide range of devices in the company's portico was never the main intention of Microsoft. In any case, the equipment was supposed to show the company's extensive software capabilities . Microsoft is currently earning the majority of its revenue on Windows, the Office suite, and business and cloud solutions. Surface Studio, though, has retired from producing smartphones after its failure in this segment. Recently decided to withdraw from the sale of fitness bands. Now abandoned Groove development. Perhaps in the coming years will be the turn of the Surface line … what would largely result (if that would have happened) would probably result from the pressure of shareholders and investors.
