IFA 2015 is traditionally the time when many companies announce their wares to a captive audience, both physical and virtual. There now seems to be a trend, however, of some of those opting to go ahead, perhaps to avoid clashing with other giants.
Just a while ago we looked into the reasons why it wouldn't be in Microsoft 's best interests to suddenly switch to Android as its mobile platform.

I don't use Apple devices, so I don't think this would affect me. Apple needs to remember it's going after only a portion of the market.I'd probably consider the Apple TV thing if it's ad-free and would have all the channels my shows are on. If it's like, just the basic stuff like the Big 4 plus sports, news, and family, I probably won't go for it.
Microsoft has launched a new Lumia smartphone that is aiming directly at users who need a device that will support dual SIM cards on a budget.

It's hard to stay connected to the internet when you are on the go in your home country; it's even harder if you travel around the world for business or pleasure. 4G service requires different frequencies to work depending on what country you are in and some normal 4G modems or hotspots won't work everywhere.
Microsoft vowed earlier this year that Lumia Camera would become the default camera app on all Windows 10 phones, but you won't have to wait for the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade to give it a shot.
