Now that Microsoft has released its Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system it is no surprise to see that retailers are keen to see how sales are going, however if MobilePlease’s statistics are anything to go by things aren’t looking too promising.
According to this article both Symbian^3 and Google Android handsets are outselling Windows Phone 7 devices by a huge amount, apparently their figures show that Android smartphones outsell WP7 smartphones by a ratio of 15:1 and Symbian^3 outsells WP7 by a ratio of 3:1.
To be honest with you these figures aren’t all that shocking, let’s face it Nokia smartphones have been popular with UK consumers for years and Android-based smartphones have seen a huge surge in 2010, I would like to hold my judgement until WP7 has at least been out for 3-6months.
Full details regarding these statistic are available upon request, I have requested these figures, therefore will update this post later today, hopefully this will show us what time frame these figures were taken from, I would assume that they were taken since the launch of WP7, however this is currently unconfirmed.
Update: These sales figures were taken from November 11th – November 24th.
What do you think the future holds for Windows Phone 7?
