Default Windows Mobile Market Share Shrinking Fast

It's a tough time out there for Windows Mobile fans. Google has been releasing updates for Android seemingly every couple of months, and Apple has just released their latest OS and has sold well in spite of some hardware issues. Although there have been some great phones such as the LG Expo and the HTC HD2, hardware sales have considerably declined. The latest NPD Group numbers show that Windows Mobile market share has dipped below 10% in the second quarter of 2010. Although the NPD numbers do not include business purchases, it's hard to believe that it the outcome would be much different had they been included. Even more distressing is the fact that other sources show that worldwide share has dropped to as low as 5%. Regardless, Windows Phone 7 will have a tough road ahead of it when it launches this fall. Can Microsoft change the landscape of the mobile market, or will Windows Phone 7 end up another footnote in mobile history just like the Kin?
