Windows Mobile still worth a medal
PocketNow.com, one of my favorite sites has recently published an interesting article about smartphones OS numbers in US And Europe, in which it seems like despite the fact most of the technology blogs enjoy spanking Windows Mobile almost on a daily basis – it is still among the strongest mobile platforms out there.
The study was conducted by comScore, a leader company in measuring the digital world.
Check out the following charts (sorry for those horrible colors):
What an amazing difference when it comes to Symbian.
Microsoft is in the 3rd place in both charts.
on a personal note, when it comes to ClickMobile and the Mobility Suite, we still see a huge demand for Windows Mobile. In fact, over 40% of our customers are using Windows Mobile smartphones, PDAs and rugged EDAs.
When it comes to features rich applications, I find that Microsoft is still the only one to provide a platform that is not only stable, mature and robust, but also has a lot of integration points with referral devices, printers, barcode scanners, 3rd party apps and more.
