According to the report of IDC , while Android has come to occupy about 85% of the mobile market over the past year the share of WIndows Phone decreased by 9.4%. At Microsoft, of course, hope for the best, the company even went in the footsteps of Google and has made its platform free of charge for use by manufacturers of smartphones that could potentially attract them. But in this respect there is a small stumbling block.
Richard Yoo, CEO of Huawei, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal , that although his company and may be interested in the production of smart phones based on other operating systems, now it just does not make sense, because it is obvious that users do not want to buy Windows Phone.
“We tried to use the operating system Windows Phone. But it was difficult to convince users to buy Windows Phone. It was not profitable for us. We lost money for two years on these phones. So now we have decided to suspend any releases new devices on the Windows Phone. We have concerns about the fact that Android is the only option, but we have no choice. “
In addition, Richard added that Tizen «has no chance of success”, and in fact even gloomier than Windows Phone.
What is there to add? Dear producers, you are on the right side of the force, stay on it and continue. Microsoft, throw this case, we are waiting for Nokia in our ranks.
