Windows Phone Revenue Underwhelms
The supposed bad news keeps on flowing about Windows Phone. First there was the news of a continuing decline in market share, and now we hear that the revenues from Windows Phone could be somewhere in the ballpark of $600M. Although this sounds like a small amount, Microsoft has said time and again that they are in this for the long run. Enthusiasm for Windows Phone is reaching an all-time high as bloggers and writers have given near universal acclaim for Mango. Further, Microsoft has been known to be stubborn when entering a new market. The major negative with this strategy seems to be that the mobile phone market is evolving faster than anyone could have possibly seen just five years ago. Regardless, Seattle PI is entitled to their opinion. If you are new to Windows Phone, I can confidently say that this will not be another KIN situation.
