The approaching Windows end-of-life deadlines could signal disruptions in those businesses that have postponed the decision to migrate to a new mobile operating system.
On June 10, Windows Embedded CE 6.0 will no longer be supported, followed by Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld on June 9, 2019 and Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 on January 14, 2020. Marco Nielsen, vice president of managed mobility services at Stratix, says there is still time for last-minute, business-critical steps to ensure business continuity and minimize cost of the transition to a new operating system.
