Windows Phone -- Ouch!

Microsoft is used to majority share, something it enjoys with Windows, Office, IE, and Exchange (and the Xbox brand is moving in that direction).

Here's the bad news from Gartner: Windows Phones has a measly 1.6 percent market share -- even less than the 4.9 percent market share it had last year. Android is the leader with 43.4 percent. That could well go up with Google's $12.5 billion purchase of Motorola Mobility, the company's mobile device division.
