Where Is This Windows Phone 7 Surge People Are Talking About

In many instances the belief that to be the best, you need to believe you are the best, typically holds true. It doesn’t seem to be the case for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform.

Now on the market for over a year Windows Phone 7 can’t seem to break 2% of the market share and by most research company reports over the last 12 months Windows Phone 7 hasn’t even broken 1% of the market share.

More after the break
What’s even worse is that most research companies are counting previous versions of Windows Mobile along with Windows Phone 7 and it still can’t ‘crack 2%.

To put this in retrospect we looked at Android’s growth in it’s first year. Now unlike iOS and iPhone, the Windows Phone 7  fan boys can’t make the argument that Windows Phone 7 is one device and one OS. Although it doesn’t have the amount of devices that Android does, in Android’s first year it did.

At the December of 2009 Comscore released this report which showed that Android had doubled it’s market share to 3.5% over the last year. Keep in mind that the G1 had been around for about a year.  The Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Eris, HTC Hero, Samsung Moment and Samsung Behold II hadn’t been on the market long enough to be considered in this research.

We know now, what has happened in the last two years since the report was released, but there is no research, data, or sales statistics that suggest that Windows Phone 7 is even close to following Android’s historic rise to fame.
