Comscore shows US Windows Phone market share losses have halted,
now 4.8 million US users own Windows Phones
October 5, 2011
Comscore have released their monthly installed base figures for the US market, and it confirms that Windows Phone has turned the corner.
Market share losses have stalled for the last 3 months now, with new Windows Phone 7 users replacing the departing Windows Mobile users at a more than fast enough rate. In the growing smartphone market, this means at the end of August there were 130,000 extra Windows Phone users compared to the end of July, and of the 84.5 million US smartphone subscribers, 4.82 million now use Windows Phones.
We look forward to the coming months, when we hope Mango fever will result the curve starting to bend upwards and actual market share gains.
Something iPhone and iOS cannot do: Live in other platform and stand out
Love it or hate it, there is something to be said for the one-size-fits-all approach of the Apple iPhone. Because Apple controls all aspects end to end of both the software and hardware involved, it can ensure a more consistent user experience than other mobile platforms. The diversity in Windows Phone 7 introduces variables that Apple doesn't have to contend with.
WP7 will look stunning on this device.
20% of Windows handsets get Mango in just 10 days
More than 20 per cent of Windows Phone devices have been updated to Mango in just 10 days – that puts Android to shame
Published on Oct 7, 2011
Microsoft launched the Windows Phone 7 Mango update on the 27 September – just 10 days ago. Since that time 20 per cent of all users have managed to secure the download on their phones, which adds up to about 1.5 per cent of users per day.
The news comes via WP Central, which reports the following: ‘Using the app 'I'm a WP7!' which has data sampled from a massive 83,527 users, we can see that Mango (builds 7720, 7721) is now on 20% of devices the world over (17% in the U.S.).’
This update number is expected to jump from 20 per cent to 50 per cent in the next 10 days. Microsoft is currently trickling Mango out to users in a controlled method. We’re not exactly sure why this is the case, but that’s the way Ballmer’s boys want to do it.
Flickr app 2.0 for Windows Phone
October 6, 2011
Following closely on the heels of our new Android app last week we’ve also updated our Windows Phone app with more features and to make use of all the good things the new Windows Phone 7.5 Mango offers: background uploading, faster performance and fast application switching. New features include:
- Built in camera: You can now take photos and share directly to Flickr from the in app camera.
- Composure grid: The camera features a grid to help you compose and align your shots which you can toggle on or off. It also turns green when you are in focus.
- Focus assist: When pressing the camera button turns the grid green when you are in focus.
- Photos are not only uploaded to Flickr, but also accessible in your Pictures Hub
- Pin new Live Tiles to your Start screen for quick access to the in-app camera, Recent Activity, and your photostream.
Group Tiles let you to create a “Group” of Applications, Contacts, or Web Sites’ bookmarks (2-4 mini Tiles). It’s the simplest way to keep your Home Screen organized. I think this is usable just for the titles that are not showing life content, such as Adobe Reader, Netflix, different games, etc. Also, if you add a Live Title or a Contact Tile, they won’t be showing any further information, just a plain icon. It basically divides a Tile into 4 small mini-Tiles.
To Create a Group just tap and hold a Tile. Then drag that Tile and drop it on top of another Tile. A group tile will be automatically created.
Windows Phone wins IDEA 2011 – people’s choice design award
By Tom Warren, on 18th Sep 11 10:27
Microsoft’s Windows Phone scooped the IDEA 2011 people’s choice award on Saturday.
The Industrial Designers Society of America handed out 3 awards to Microsoft during their IDEA 2011 ceremony on Saturday evening. The Windows Phone design team secured the noteworthy People’s Choice Award, an award handed to the favourite IDEA 2011 god award winner. Windows Phone also picked up awards for Interaction and best in show. The Windows Phone design team described themselves as “very humbled and honored” after thanking everyone who voted on Twitter.
The award will be seen as a huge boost to Microsoft’s Metro efforts. The company unveiled its Windows 8 plans earlier this week which include a “reimagined” user interface built on Microsoft’s solid Metro work from Zune and Windows Phone. The interface is largely untested on a large amount of people as Windows Phone has yet to gain a solid market share. Despite the slow sales, Microsoft will be boosted by the Metro look in Windows 8 and its efforts with mobile giant Nokia. The first Windows Phone Nokia device is expected to be unveiled at Nokia World in London next month. Microsoft’s push towards a unified Metro interface across Windows, Xbox and Windows Phone will likely drive sales of Windows Phone devices as consumers adopt the unique interface.
The Metro interface has won fans across the world thanks to its unique and highly personal approach. Microsoft’s people choice award further validates the company’s vision and could indicate that Microsoft has an exciting year ahead as it returns to win consumer confidence.
