Windows Phone 7 may pick up 20% of webOS users


With the mercy killing of webOS by HP a few days ago, current users, who likely number in the low millions, are looking for a new platform, and it seems Windows Phone 7 could be one of the big beneficiaries of the influx.

imageIn a small poll on the forums asking which platform users will be switching to 20% said Windows Phone 7.  A similar (smaller) poll have 33% saying it is the “Next best OS”.

Brandon Watson has also had a good response to his webOS developer outreach.

While the small number of webOS users will likely not even be noticed on iPhone and Android, it may result in an appreciable bump in Windows Phone 7 users, especially with new Mango devices coming soon.
