Research company Changewave have posted the results of their regular survey of smartphone consumers, and the results do not look very good for Windows Phone.
According to their research only 1% of US smartphone consumers who are planning to buy a smartphone in the next 90 days are planning to buy a Nokia (presumably Lumia), unchanged from the equally dire result in September 2014, before the holiday season.
That number was 3% in December 2012 and 2% in March 2013, and matches Windows Mobile numbers from 2010.
The numbers indicate a continuing disenchantment of the US market with Microsoft’s mobile strategy, which has concentrated on low-end handsets, a poor fit for the richest market in the world.
It remains to be seen if Microsoft can turn this around, but it certainly will not happen until Microsoft launches a new flagship, which is only expected in the second half of 2015.
Is the US market lost to Microsoft? Let us know below.
