Windows phone is in the smartphone market for quite some time now but has not been able to get a significant market share until now.
The low end windows phone have shown silver linings but the high end phones are just not selling.
But that is not the end of the story. Windows and especially Nokia have been taking the phone quite seriously. Nokia has been constantly looking to improve the hardware and Microsoft is working on the software and apps.
Recently, some great apps including Vine, Instagram, FIFA 14 have arrived on the windows phone platform. Windows phone store now has more than 200,000 apps.
Microsoft is rumoured to be working on an iOS style notification centre and a virtual voice assistant code named Cortana.
Nokia’a take over by Microsoft will help integrating hardware and software in a way like never before. This blend will only boost the Windows phone ecosystem.
All Microsoft has to do now is improve the OS continuously and make developers improve their apps.
Windows phone has all the popular apps but these apps are of poor quality when compared with their android or iOS counterparts.
For now Windows phone is NO for me but I believe it could be the phone I want to own in 2016.
