IT publication Telecompaper reports on the results of a survey by their Telecompaper Consumer Panel in September, and noted that 42% of Windows Phone users in the Netherlands expect to switch to a different operating system for their next phone.
The number is actually a reduction from 58% 3 years ago (2012), when Telecompaper first ran the survey, suggesting that customers have become more loyal over time.
According to their data iOS intention to change dropped from 43 to 22% and Android from 30% to 22%.
The numbers suggest as the market matures users are settling into their ecosystem niche. Unfortunately it seems Windows Phone does not quite have the same stickiness as the other mobile operating systems.
