Gartner: Windows Phone 7 will trail behind the competition

Gartner predicts bad news for Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 in the mobile marketplace.

Gartner predicts bad news for Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 in the mobile marketplace.

According to InformationWeek, it's really bad news.

Gartner predicts the release of Windows Phone 7 will help bump Microsoft's share of the worldwide market from 4.7% in 2010 to 5.2% in 2011, but says the company's share will ultimately decline to just 3.9% by 2014.

According to data released by Nielsen, the current state of play is that Android holds some 32% of the US market, while Apple as a 25% share. This is an enormous mountain for Microsoft to climb, and it's little wonder why some feel that the Redmond giant might have another KIN on its hands.
