Android Outselling W7 Handsets 15 to 1


I cannot say that I am very surprised, but there is an interesting article over at talking about a retailer in the UK that is reporting that Android devices are out pacing the new Windows Mobile device 15 to 1.

Now to be up front, the report from the retailer is an isolated one, is not a nation wide analysis, but it is an indicator to go along with other indicators that paint a picture that perhaps the new Windows OS is not doing very well.

What are those indicators?  Let’s take a look:The

  • The November 8th launch date for the new Windows device arrived with a whisper, with no lines or fanfare.  No buzz of people waiting to get the new devices.
  • AT&T and T-Mo are both doing BOGO deals for JUST Windows Mobile devices.
  • The reported demand this holiday season is for HTC Android handsets, blackberry devices and iPhone 4 devices.  WP7 does not even make the list.

It will be interesting to see the final numbers for holiday sales, but I think we will see that WM7 is going to be at the bottom of the pack, with Android in first or second position, more info as it becomes available.
