Windows

2013 was nothing less than a blockbuster success for Windows Phone, which went from industry also-ran to the undisputed third mobile ecosystem, and is poised to challenge iPhone for the number two spot. You didn't think it could get this good? That's OK, neither did I.

Windows Phone seemingly turns a corner with every new application, small operating system update, and new Nokia Lumia. It's turning so many corners it's running in circles.

Microsoft does have the power to push and withstand for a while. However it doesn't guarantee success.

The Zune never replaced the iPod, even after a strong attempt.

I think widows mobile growth, is just due to Nokia having a decent camera that works as a phone that runs Windows Mobile. If Nokia used Android they will probably sell just as many if not more units. And MS will be much further behind.
