If you notice the image above, you will see a saddening figure. What it really means is that there is a significant drop ( from 6.8% in 2010 to 3.6 % in 2011) in interest in Microsoft’s mobile operating system. According to the report, Microsoft sold $ 3.6 million devices running their Operating system but Windows mobile 6.x outsold Windows Phone 7, which comes in as a surprise. Out of the 3.6 million devices sold only 1.6 million of em were devices running WP7, a slow start indeed for Microsoft. What’s more surprising is that there are people out there buying a WinMo device!

I’d like to see this report again next year to see how things have changed with Nokia partnership, when Nokia joins the Windows Phone 7 bandwagon. Remember, Gartner predicted Windows Phone 7 to be placed no.2 in the market share behind Android by 2015. So, let’s wait and see how it plays out.
