    Microsoft's next phone will be a high-end device aimed at the enterprise market, according to the company's Corporate VP of Windows Kevin Gallo. He also claimed that the handset would be "category innovating."

    "We’re really aligned to what we’ve done on the Windows desktop," he said, adding “which is we’ll lead with some high end and category innovation like we’ve done with Surface, and OEMs will go and build the breadth of the catalog."

    He also commented on the company's Windows Phone OS, stressing that neither it has been abandoned, nor there are any such plans.

    "Windows Phone is fully supported. We’re fully behind it. We’re not abandoning the phone," he said. "There’s really no change in what our direction or strategy is with respect to releasing the Windows Phone software."

    In fact, he said they'll soon be pushing out a major update to the Windows 10 Mobile OS.
