Microsoft Disappointed with the Sales of Windows Phone 7

Microsoft admitted that the company is disappointed with the sales of Windows Phone 7 devices.

It looks like the tech giant Microsoft’s new mobile endeavor Windows Phone 7 hasn’t got off to the best start. According to Kantar Worldpanel Comtech, a market research company, Windows Phone 7 has managed to get only 1.7% of the Mobile OS market in the U.K., while Android is emerging as a leader with 47.1% share.

I’m not saying I love where we are, but I am very optimistic on where we can be. We’ve just got to kick this thing to the next level.” It is clear that the company is under a lot of pressure to make the Mango update a success.

Before the launch of this mobile OS, many analysts had predicted Windows Phone to dominate the smartphone scene by 2015.
