Windows Phone, a Disappointment?

Asymco: “Windows Phone is in limbo. The company acknowledged that it has performed below expectations. During the last quarter for which we have data (ending June) I have an estimate that Windows Phone sold only 1.4 million units (Gartner’s sell-through analysis suggests 1.7 million). That gives Microsoft a 1.3% share of units sold (Gartner 1.6%), a new low.”

1.4 to 1.7 million units in a quarter. Compare that to 1 million iPhone’s in a day.

It’s too bad, really, the Windows Phone OS is pretty darned nice and Microsoft has shortened release times, which is super nice.

Hopefully they don’t give up, it’s good for all the smartphone makers to be pushed by each other.
