How could Microsoft have failed so spectacularly?
becker 2 years ago
Microsoft practically defined the state of the art smartphones in 2006. My Windows Phone had the internet, Word, Excel, and a pretty decent keyboard for texting via MSN chat. Five years later, and they're practically a no-show in the smartphone market. Data released recently shows that sales of the Windows 7 Phone has dropped by 38% since it was released last fall. What's the main reason for their slide, and is there any way they can counteract their loss of market share?
I admit, I got rid of my Windows phone when I left T-Mobile, and I'm using a Verizon iPhone, and it's pretty good. No real keyboard and no Word + Excel, but it's much faster and has the best apps.
