In case it wasn’t already crystal clear, there is not going to be a Windows 10 Mobile. It also appears that the Windows 10 Insider Programme has completely dropped the Mobile version of the OS from its release schedule. Despite Microsoft originally saying that it would continue development.
Brandon LeBlanc, Senior Program Manager on the Windows Insider Program Team, casually informed the public of the lack of Windows 10 Mobile builds after responding to a question on Twitter. Reversing a statement from Microsoft that it would continue to work on the Mobile operating system.
No mobile builds are coming.

Univerval Windows Programme apps are still being developed and supported, but it is likely that these will also go away as Micosoft phases W10 Mobile completely out of its development cycle.
There may still be those holding out for a new smartphone from Microsoft. Especially considering all the rumours of a Surface Phone that keep appearing every few months. However, it is more likely that Microsoft has shelved any plans that it had for entering the mobile phone market.
