Latest Windows Phone news. It looks like they died while they were "all in" and "waiting for Moore's Law" and now the obituaries are coming out.

It's as true as ever: NO ONE WANTS A WINDOWS PHONE!!!! :-)


Ooops! Missed one. WP 10 is also DOA because NO ONE WANTS A WINDOWS PHONE! LoL


Insight into Why developers don't like WP ....some background information for Tomi, who I am sure has heard similar stories from other developers.


No surprise that LTE tops the list in the U.S. We have 4% of the world's population and 50% of its LTE subscriptions right now.


It are rumours that maybe Android apps coming to Windows Phone:
"Microsoft might put Android apps on Windows Phone"

When the marketshare is so low I suppose thats possible, would be interesting to se how Satya Nadella deal with the situation.


Apps on the WP is a desperation move by microsoft, ...if they do it ...and you can see how much access to more apps has helped Blackberry. It won't matter because the statistics say NO ONE WANTS A WINDOWS PHONE! ...that won't change.


Phone cost veri important fie me. It is why I bought a USED iPhone. It is important to everyone I know, so I don't understand it not being shown as a critical factor. Maybe that are just polling those that use contract phone where price does not matter. sizecis


I'm surprised it's taken so long for things like battery life and physical robustness (water/shock proofing) to become primary selection factors. I'd add sunlight readable myself although that's clearly niche in terms of market (none are regardless of their backlight since they're too shiny).

Although big screens are desirable to many there should still be a sizeable market for phones small enough to fit in a trouser pocket? Women have shoulder bags but unless blokes start carrying man-bags around those of us that live in warmer climes have nowhere to put those obesely overweight phones most of the time.


Not surprising but pretty sad that "security" did not rank among the top reasons. People want their phone to just work™, whether someone can read their private information or steal their online/banking credentials only matters after it has happened.
