Why do you think that Android has been outselling Windows Phone 7 and pervious OSs for such a long time? Let alone, Windows is having a hard time catching its breath against other market contenders as well. The OS’s performance is off to a declining slope, which makes RIM’s Blackberry OS looks far better.
In terms of sales from Nov. 11 to Nov. 24, Windows Phone 7 only accounted for a meager 1.87% of the overall Mobile Please’s smartphone sales. Meanwhile, Blackberry lunged in at 19.36%, Android at 28.56% and Apple iOS attracted 7% customers in the above time period.
Take a look at our reasons that related to Windows Phone 7’s infrequent and instable demand pattern against the Android OS;
If it’s about security, Windows Phone 7 Mobile OS doesn’t have any on-device encryption services. There are no thorough complex password policies and no VPNs … so that kind of makes the Microsoft OS a bad choice for privacy concerned customers. Since most of the clients are traditionally from the business community, they’d never compromise on security modules.
As far as the apps go, it’s another area where Windows is lagging. We have over 1400 apps in our record that Microsoft and some other developers have created for the mobile phones. The figure is small and it doesn’t fare well against what Android has in store. BUT, seeing to the fact that Windows Phone 7 is fairly a new OS and people at this level check out its quality, rather than quantity, there isn’t much of “quality” aspect there.
• System Performance;
Windows Phone 7, as compared to the Android OS, touts out a sluggish performance. It is poor and sort of makes us think that Microsoft’s OS had been spending a lot of time on the couch. Microsoft also chose to go with Flash, which is slowly becoming outdated as compared to HTML5 and other video plugin modules.
