A few years ago Microsoft entered in smartphone business but they failed due to the non-optimized OS. After shutting down their project they focusing on Android Project, maybe in future Microsoft come in the smartphone field. 

Because they finally optimize Windows for ARM has not been in vain. Windows 10 on ARM is seeing a resurgence thanks to new Qualcomm Snapdragon laptops. But those old Windows Mobile smartphones refuse to die thanks to the effort of the development community.

While it is a remarkable achievement, Mobile Shell is still a work in progress. It’s missing key features such as screen rotation and resolution changing, for example. That aside, Mobile Shell is an interesting glimpse at what could have been had Microsoft decided to merge Windows 10 and Windows Mobile instead of just ditching the latter entirely.

If you’re interested in trying Mobile Shell, you can find its GitHub repo here. Alternatively, it’s available on the Microsoft Store.
