Icon6 It's Official: Windows Phone is the Third Most Popular Smartphone OS !


Yes the source is IDC
Windows Phone posted the largest year-over-year gain among the leading operating systems, more than doubling its size from a year ago. Nokia was largely responsible for driving these volumes higher, accounting for 79.0% of all Windows Phone shipments during the quarter. Since Nokia began shipping Windows Phone devices, the company has shipped a total of 20.3 million units and grown the footprint worldwide to include address multiple market segments. Meanwhile, other vendors continue to offer Windows Phone devices, but mainly as an alternative to their signature Android devices. Still, the gains made by Windows Phone demonstrate both end-user demand and OEM support.

BlackBerry realized double-digit declines from a year ago, but this masks the progress that the company has made since then. In its first quarter of availability, BlackBerry formally introduced and shipped more than a million units running on its new BB10 platform, a significant breakthrough for the company. At the same time, BlackBerry still relied on its BB7 smartphones for the majority of its shipment volume, which, due to their lower prices, were well received within key markets.

As for the rest of teh OSs' Android is the supreme leader, the iOS gained but then its shrinking a lot as the equity market also says.





"Windows Phone claiming the third spot is a first and helps validate the direction taken by Microsoft and key partner Nokia," said Kevin Restivo, senior research analyst with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker. "Given the relatively low volume generated, the Windows Phone camp will need to show further gains to solidify its status as an alternative to Android or iOS."
No one here can argue with that summary. Android currently holds 75 percent of the market, while Apple's mobile platform takes 17.3 percent. Windows Phone jumped BlackBerry with 3.2 percent, while the latter lags behind on 2.9 percent. BlackBerry is reported to be making progress, but is still relying on BB7 smartphones for the majority of its shipment volume.

A fact made more evident as Microsoft's shares are trading at a FIVE year high and apple's are slowing like anything in bear category !!!
Bill Gates became the richest person again
Bill Gates Retakes World


Hello World

The 57-year-old co-founder of Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) recaptured the title from Mexican investor Carlos Slim yesterday, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, as the software maker hit a five-year high. It is the first time Gates has held the mantle since 2007. His fortune is valued at $72.7 billion, up 16 percent year-to-date.
Slim’s America Movil (AMXL) SAB, the largest mobile-phone operator in the Americas, has dropped 14 percent this year after Mexico’s Congress passed a bill that could quash the billionaire’s market dominance. That’s helped erase more than $3 billion from the 73-year-old tycoon’s net worth.
“When they’re talking about reform in a country that’s generally poor, and the guy shows up No. 1 on the list -- not a good thing,” said Greg Lesko, managing director at New York-based Deltec Asset Management LLC, which oversees $750 million and has an “underweight” position in Slim’s flagship company. “He’s had a pretty good monopoly situation in Mexico, and the Mexican cellphone user has been paying more than he should. We applaud it for the country.”

Re: It's Official: Windows Phone is the Third Most Popular Smartphone OS !

considering that most phones now are either android, windows, iOS or BB, this is a sad outcome.

But, considering the other fact that basically anyone can get certified to make android devices, its good

"This" is driving me nuts... i dont get it @_@.

on the other hand Windows is the third most popular OS means that they are growing and doing things right , and the competition has to keep an eye out and improve their own platforms, which means better stuff for the consumers . YAY! for consumers.

ranking 3rd out of 4 major competitors isnt really much.

Re: It's Official: Windows Phone is the Third Most Popular Smartphone OS !

With only 3.3% of market share thats certainly not a great figure, IMO. Ofcourse its increasing but I am sure Microsoft and Nokia had higher hopes from the platform.
