It’s safe to assume that Windows Phone does not have the same clout that other operating systems, like iOS and Android do. However Microsoft seems pretty optimistic and to a certain extent, even pleased with themselves as they have announced that they are actually outselling the iPhone in 7 markets, and Blackberry in 26 markets, which we have to say is pretty impressive. Granted it’s not the resounding success that Microsoft is looking for, but it’s a start, right?
Microsoft revealed this on their blog and based their numbers on the IDC, who measured shipping numbers and found that Microsoft’s Windows Phone partners shipped more devices than Apple and Blackberry. Microsoft goes on to note that Windows Phone has also managed to reach 10% market share in certain countries, but neglected to mention exactly which ones. Will we see Windows Phone capture a larger market share with their next Windows Phone build? We can only wait and see, but what do you guys think of Microsoft’s chances?
