Windows 10 Creators Update is now out for Windows Mobile smartphones. That may seem like a continued vote of support by Microsoft for its failed mobile platform, until you realize that only a baker’s dozen of Windows Mobile devices can install the upgrade, down significantly from the previous Windows 10 update.
Why bother updating Windows Mobile? Microsoft said more than a year ago it was putting the platform in deep freeze, after killing its own Lumia devices. And Microsoft has turned its mobile attentions to Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android, increasingly (though haltingly) bringing its core apps to those successful rivals.
