Windows Phone 7: Consumers Might Like Me, They Might Really Like Me!

If you look at market share numbers, Windows Phone 7 is a bigger dud than Christine O'Donnell's new book "Troublemaker" (if you read it, share your thoughts with the crew at dbarney@redmondmag.com).

The sub-10 percent market share numbers for Windows Phone 7 devices are the now. The future may (or may not) be brighter. A group called Connected Intelligence has research claiming that some 44 percent of current cell phoners are considering Windows Phone 7. Interestingly, one percent more -- or 45 percent -- don't even know that Windows Phone 7 exists.

I was recently burned by some bogus research on the relative intelligence of browser users, and these Connected Intelligence numbers seems high to me. I poked around a bit and haven't seen any red flags, but I would ask what does it mean to consider? I'm considering buying an 80-foot yacht, but in reality will probably buy an off-season ticket on the Nantucket Ferry instead.

What are your thoughts on Windows Phone 7? Use your smartphone, laptop, thin client or whatever and e-mail me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
