The numbers are out for 2012 for Windows Phone and they are encouraging to say the least the OS has grown 150% over the same period last year. This is great news especially for Nokia who accounted for 76% of those sales. There was 6 Million Windows Phone units shipped last qtr and most likely that’s what sold. Given the tight supply of Lumia devices on hand at retailers.
While these number are good news for Windows Phone sales need to continue at this pace for Windows Phone to survive. Windows Phone had 2.6 percent of the entire market and almost overtook BlackBerry as the 3rd eco-system. However this pales in comparison to 21 percent that iOS had (iOS lost 2% of the market last year.) and the 70 percent that Android had. I feel that until Windows Phone has at least 10 percent of the market it will not be taken seriously by the industry in general. This is predicted to happen inside the next three years. The question is can Nokia ride and survive on the Windows Phone wave till than?
