Microsoft is trying to make Windows iPhone on a strong No. 3 in the smartphone market, behind Android and iPhone, but first he has to overcome the competitor is different: Samsung's smartphone operating system Bada. Not to mention RIM and Symbian.
Redmond company remained in sixth place in the sales of the smartphone operating system in the first quarter, dropping to 1.9 percent of the market in the quarter, according to new figures published this morning by the research firm Gartner.
That was down from 2.6 percent in the same quarter last year.
This was the trend all over the world to Microsoft similar to results reported for the first quarter in the United States by the research firm comScore Networks. Figures do not reflect the launch of the United States Lumia's new Nokia 900 phone and a Windows key, which hit the market in early April.
