Market share has started to grow again. Also it's strange that Symbian and Maemo aren't on those graphs. After all since before a bit Nokia was #1 smartphone seller in the world, they most obviously had the best products right? Or are they an exception?

And yeah, my WP7 experience is limited to 15 minutes in a store playing with floor models. Because I'm not stupid enough to even consider buying inferior products.
*Sigh* There was a user like you called 003 once. He's no longer around, and OCN is a much better place. Please tell me, what do you gain from being how you are? :|

so why bother going for a locked down OS when you can get nearly the same thing that lets you access more power?
If MeeGo would be already released, it would have been so much better than Android. It is 100% Open-Source, has a minimalistic/modern UI and has the Nokia hardware to boot. It's a shame, if the N9 had released beggining of last year, Nokia would still be the #1.

Nokia has very low smart phone market share in the US. However, Nokia is still one of the leaders worldwide. WP7 will see much higher adoption with Nokia using it in their next phones.

And we won't see any Nokia WP7 until 2012 according to the deal with Microsoft.

That means we likely won't even see any WP7, but WP8 devices.

I don't know what Apple is complaining about(besides stagnant growth). The clear loser is Blackberries, looks like Android is eating their pie.

I really want a windows phone, but until Verizon gets a lust worthy phone soon I may go with the Samsung Function or iPhone 5.

I really like the look and feel of meego
you can tell its really optimised when the guy was demoing how he could change between apps while watching the hd vide....and the video would still playing no matter the movement

too bad it was delayed.....I got my first Android powered phone which was a SGS at the start of the year....so if meego had gotten out I would have probably gone for that....too bad it was delayed until now~

See, I don't understand this. Now I'm not a fanboy so don't take anything I say in an us v. them sort of way, but my experience is the opposite of this article. Everyone I know who tried a WP7 phone took it back before the 14days or whatever was up. Every one of them traded it for an Android phone and was thrilled. And I don't mean just geeks/nerds, I'm talking Joe Consumer here.

I'm lucky to own both an Android and WP7 phone(one through work). I have an HTC EVO 4 and the Samsung Focus, and if I had to chose one, I'd lean towards the WP7. They both have their strengths, but the WP7 operating system outshines Android imop. It's just so much easier to use and work with.

That's funny, I've had the complete opposite experience as your friends I guess. I think a lot of people jumped ship from WP7 because they didn't have all the apps that the Android or iPhone had-- but this was to be expected since it was so new; or they chose the HTC Surround, which imop is epic fail when it comes to battery life.

A few things wrong with these numbers. Primarily, WP7 has tiny marketshare. This means the fanboy:normal person ratio is huge. Yes, I WP7 is great, I love mine. However, you learn the you can make numbers say what you want, rather than anything useful. That's all this is. In fact, and one could argue that despite being in the bargain bin, consumers of the non fanboy variety aren't even buying them. It has less marketshare than Window 6.5 last I heard for crying out loud!

All I have to say is that I love my focus, and the Mango update is great!. Can't wait for more great things from Microsoft.
