Windows 10 Mobile grows to now be on 7% of Windows phones

The numbers for W10 will only continue to climb. Build number 10586 (what the 950 ships with) is the latest on the Insider track and it's very good.

Dead platform. Not much to say. 2 years without a new flagship. 1.7% worldwide market share. s**tty app store that despite being up for years still doesn't have big apps. Most of apps lacking features and updates. The perfect phone for a 80y old who wants a phone just to make calls.

Can't be that dead if you clicked on the article. Honestly 7% higher than the low percentage that Marshmellow has. I have a 950 and its great and has over 500,000 apps since when was that a small number. I bet if you had $500,000 you wouldn't be complaining.

It hasn't been 2 years without a flagship, the 930 came out in July 2014. It's overtaken iOS in a couple of markets and continues to grow in Europe. I've never had a problem finding the apps that I need and they have the features I expect them to have.
Why are you commenting on a subject you're so poorly informed about?

Windows is not blackberry.....a surface phone will be an iPhone killer.
remember, Microsoft used surface rt, sp1 &2 to pave way for surface book.. Something is cooking

It's always the next phone, the next OS version, the next year for WP fanboys, every year...

What does BlackBerry have to do with this article?

I believe his point was that Microsoft wasnt going to throw in the towel and make Android phones. And that the concept of a Surface Phone is something that will likely succeed. If Microsoft can establish the PC-Phone hybrid market and do it right, then they will dominate the market. What they need is to be able to run Win32 apps off a phone and the continuum concept would make it a must have device for businesses, government and consumers alike.

I think his point was more along the lines of him taking a potshot at BlackBerry. Either way, BlackBerry has absolutely nothing to do with this article.

If cevelopers can move in the direction that their business apps to support arm/risc/UWP it would be better long term for them - it opens them up for an easy move onto any platform they want from Windows.
Win32 isnt necessary if MS can get people to do such a thing...(probably a good thing, forced backwards compatibility limits what can be done in the future)

Got impatient waiting for the official Windows 10 for mobile update and just installed the latest Windows 10 for mobile technical preview build on my Lumia 640. Eager to see what it's all about.

It's very good MG. Even on a 1GB device it rolls smoothly. Do your thing and ignore the trolls. Or as Domino's used to say "avoid the noids".

Lol, agreed. So far I'm enjoying it.

Even both these OS is way much better than iOs.
