Archos considers entering the Windows Phone market
It might have been too premature to ask this question, but the interviewer did question the CEO on how Archos would divide its resources between Google's open source OS and Microsoft's mobile OS. "Before anything else we are focused on Google," stated Poirier.
One report from ABI Research indicated that Windows Phone saw the number of handsets shipped with the platform soar 104% on a year-over-year basis for the fourth quarter of 2013. Other recent reports, including one from Windows Phone mobile ad network AdDuplex, reveal that Nokia is delivering 93% of the handsets running the platform. With Nokia's control over both the low and high end of the Windows Phone market, and with Microsoft's soon to close acquisition of the Nokia Devices and Services division, it might not be that easy for Archos to shoehorn its way into the Windows Phone business. Bigger names like Samsung and HTC have tried and thus far, have failed to make a mark in Windows Phone handsets.
