Microsoft are dropping another hardware line – this time it’s WiFi network cards, laptop adapters and broadband networking routers. If you didn’t know that MS sold this sort of hardware, it was in the North American market only. They started selling the equipment in 2002, to favourable reviews and customer comments.
Microsoft have yet to comment on why they are dropping their WiFi line, but it’s though that this move will allow them to focus on their key software businesses.
They’ll allow current stocks to sell out and support the hardware through its warranty period, but then that’s it. The wireless XBox adapter will stay on the market however, underlining MS’s commitment to their innovative games platform.
