Microsoft Update: Windows 10 Mobile Reaches 1 Million Users, Release Date Within Days
Microsoft seems to be on a high these days and the Redmond based tech giant is testing success in areas where many thought it had no chance at all. Its success after repeated initial failure in the tablet market is a case in point.
Now there are reasons to believe that despite low market penetration of Windows smartphone, the appeal of Windows 10 Mobile is increasing in the market. The tech giant enjoys only three percent market share despite spending huge sums on acquiring Nokiaâ€™s phone business and developing a top of the line operating system.
Nonetheless Windows 10 Mobile seems to be getting ahead though slowly. Reports suggest that Windows 10 Mobile that has been released for merely two devices till now has been installed on as many as 1 million devices.
The company is achieving one milestone after the other. The Redmond based tech giant recently revealed that Windows 10 was running on 200 million devices across the world, explaining that adoption of the new operating system goes much better than it did in the case of Windows 7 or 8. But it’s very important to note that this 200 million figure concerns devices, and not PCs, as Microsoft is also offering Windows 10 for Xbox One consoles and smartphones.
On the other hand when it comes to smartphone segment such success is eluding the company and may take years to emulate it. Latest data suggest that Microsoft registered 1 million handsets running Windows 10 Mobile, which is kind of impressive, given the fact that the OS isn’t yet broadly available. The new mobile operating system comes pre-installed on just a few devices including Lumia 950, 950 XL, and 550.
