Developer survey points to increased interest in Windows Phone, more than twice the Blackberry 10 number

Microsoft was certain they can beat Blackberry 10 easily for being the third ecosystem that will keep the Android-iOS duopoly on its toes, and a developer survey released by Appcelerator seems to confirm this notion. They asked 6046 developers how interested were they in writing for each current mobile platform, and, predictably, iOS and Android took the cake here. Of note is that Windows Phone grabbed 37%, up from the previous quarter, and almost 2.5 times higher than the interest in BlackBerry 10.

Samsung can't be on top, genius !!! Its a survey of OS's not phone manufacturers. Don't start fanboy wars for no reason. If you know the answer then simply answer. There is no need to assume a rude stance & show us your immaturity.

I'm not starting fanboy wars. "Are you disappointed because Samsung isn't on top?" I'm just asking him, no cursing, no bashing, just asking. And FYI, he's a Samsung fanboy all along. Asking doesn't explain how mature or immature the person is, if you have something to ask, then why not just ask and get the answer?

Get rid of it... Simly if you don't like your choice you should go to other OS that are not boring and stop crying.

This is good as the more developers move towards WP, the better chance MIcrosoft has to get them to build apps that really can integrate across all their platforms. And that is going to be incredible for them.

Just look at Tizen! :P and where are Ubuntu and Jolla? They are way better than Tizen.

i DONT GET IT.. The graph shows dominance of Android & iOS. The graph doesnt even show a steep increase in the interest for Windows developers. Still title of the article is about Windows. FTW.. Windows is still around the same place where it was on Jan-2011. Only BB is falling down. Donno how author picked such a title. may be he's a Windows Fanboy....
