According to many reviews, Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system is not a bad one. In fact many have commented on its sleek design and its responsiveness, and in spite of that, the platform still faces a lack of adoption compared to its iOS and Android rivals. One could argue that the hardware of Windows Phone devices pales in comparison to the competition, while others argue that a lack of apps and a lack of developers willing to port their apps over onto the Windows Phone platform is holding the system back from widespread adoption, and if your argument is for the latter, you should probably take note that according to Microsoft’s chairman and chief executive officer for the Greater China region, the Windows Phone Marketplace has recently topped 70,000 apps and now boasts 100,000 registered developers. Granted these numbers pale in comparison to the 500,000+ and 450,000+ apps on iTunes and Google Play respectively, but it’s still pretty quick considering it was just last month the Windows Phone Marketplace boasted 60,000 apps.
