Math don’t lie, folks. Tom Warren says Windows Phone is dead.
Windows Phone has long been in decline and its app situation is only getting worse. With a lack of hardware, lack of sales, and less than 2 percent market share, it’s time to call it: Windows Phone is dead.
Yours truly last year.
Windows Phone is Windows on a smartphone. Or, rather, on very few smartphones. It’s the Windows people love to hate but in your hand. Microsoft has been giving away Windows Phones in underdeveloped countries where the brand may still not be viewed as a technological scourge, but sales units and market share do not add up to meaningful numbers like, well, you know; revenue and profits. Windows Phone is a fail. Sooner or later the bean counters will force the company’s deluded executives to Think Different™ and do what they did to former CEO Steve Ballmer.
Any day now…
