Windows Phone 7 Market Share Falls: Mango to the Rescue?

This just in some two hours ago, according to the Los Angeles Times… Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7, as of the end of April, fell from 8% market share to 6.7 %. Meanwhile, iPhone fell to the second spot, and RIM’s BlackBerry’s fell to the third- in short, WP7 is fourth in the market with a decent 6.7%– Android has acquired the top smart phone spot.

Now the million dollar question… can that delicious ripe fruit called Mango be the platform’s savior and … redeemer? Microsoft certainly seems to think so.. and so would those who have seen what Redmond has in store for WP7 coming this fall ( check the video below this article). Microsoft has to act fast before, the market gets away from them.A great concept… it just needs better execution and delivery./Source: Bing Images

Here are the five things Redmond has to do to dominate before its too late:

1. Extensively Advertise Windows Phone 7

2. Deliver continuous updates to the platform

3. Respond quickly to WP7 customers

4. Limit the configuration time carriers (At&t and Verizon Wireless) can take before releasing the updates to customers

5. Integrate with other existing Microsoft components

Bottom line: the Key for Microsoft is delivering and executing what it is already offering- Redmond must very quickly get the Mango update to customers, before the customers start ignoring the platform. If the Mango update is delivered successfully, RIM’s BlackBerry’s will fall and iPhone will be in serious trouble.
