Microsoft has been working very hard to get its Windows Phone platform up to the iOS and Android level. Although, it definitely still has a very long way to go, it seems to be making all the right moves lately. With the recent introduction of Windows Phone 8, it may give the company that extra push to get the platform where it needs to be. But does Windows Phone have what it takes to reach the top? T-Mobile sure thinks so.
In a blog post published yesterday, T-Mobile’s senior vice president of product management wrote:
Today, Android continues to represent the lion’s share of smartphones on our 4G network however, Windows Phone has come on strong as a modern smartphone platform with a simple and addictive experience. In fact, the mix of Windows Phone sales among our product portfolio has more than doubled in the past eight months with the availability of the Nokia Lumia 710 and HTC Radar 4G.
The fact that Windows Phone sales have doubled at the carrier over the past 8 months is great news for the company and shows potential for the platform as a whole. It looks like Nokia’s Lumia line and some strong devices from the likes of HTC are also helping to attract news users to the platform.
Microsoft may actually stand a chance if its latest Windows Phone 8 software reaches up to the hype. What do you think? Have you considered purchasing any Windows Phones lately?
