"One of those reasons is that the Windows Phone Store has surpassed 9 million transactions per day."

Are "transactions" 9 million phones a day or 9 million little apps?

This year my MS stock made money while Apple stock=k lost money. That's a lesson for you S&Xbones troll. (that is even a better name than i-Kiddie)

Two years ago, when I first got one I was the only one of all my employees and clients that had a Windows phone (the Win mobile 7.5). Now that is no longer the case. I really like mine and while most of the phones I see are Droids (and still some i-Kiddies) there are now a noticeable number of Windows phones. We are happy enough with them that at our next upgrade cycle in the Spring of 2014 they will be Windows phones. I know that my statistical sampling is modest but there is no doubt that MS is starting to make progress and gain share, and perhaps learn some lessons.

I am seeing the same thing in my workplace. There seems to be an even split of Windows Phones, iPhones and Android phones. Granted, that doesn't reflect the market as a whole, but it's nice to see.

I loved my WP7.5 device, and I love my new WP8 device. It's a great OS that does everything I want. If the app store is smaller than the other guys, I have not noticed.

They don't learn lessons.

It's pretty simple: if you don't like what they are selling than don't buy. Paul for you to continue to bag on ANYTHING, that has to do with Microsoft, is ridiculous. I can't recall the last positive thing you have written about them.

I don't see where Paul bagged on Microsoft. Perhaps you're just a little tender? I understand that constant failure breeds frustration.

The cool, edgy, hip thing to do right now is bag on Microsoft. Proof? Look at the recent Steam sharing announcement. Now go back a few months and look at the original Xbox One announcement. Kinda the same although it seems like Microsoft's implementation would be somewhat better (in my opinion of course) but Microsoft was raked over the coals while Steam was heralded as the second coming of Jesus.

Either way, my mobile contract is up in February, 2014. If there's a windows phone out or if one is coming out soon that's quad core and 1080p, I'll ditch android and won't look back.

RIGHT?

The Lumia 1520 is supposed to be coming out in a month or two which is gonna be a quad-core 1080p 6" phone.

I'll argue it has less to do with whatever excuse you invent and more to do with crappy design decisions forced on engineers by sales monkeys.

'One in ten' sounds nice, but it's not sustainable without a lot more growth. It's just enough market share to plow a ton of money into, for no return - as Microsoft did with the Zune.

The fact that almost half of Microsoft's sales have been coming from non-smartphone users should be even less encouraging. It suggests that WinPhone appeals largely to the few remaining shut-ins who don't actually know what a smartphone is, and presumably have no previous brand loyalty. Unless Microsoft can actually steal sales from Apple and Samsung, it's wasting its time. And its shareholders money.
