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).

Unfortunately such is not the case with Windows Phones. 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.
