Windows Phone shows increased developer interest, 2.5 times more than Blackberry 10


Appcelerator’s quarterly survey of 6046 developers taken in April this year shows that Windows Phone has been able to maintain and even grow somewhat developer interest, with 37% of developers surveyed very interested in developing for the OS.

This number is up from 36% in the last quarter, and constitutes a recovery from the rollercoaster ride of the Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 transition, which I think hurt developer interest more than Microsoft would ever admit.

The number is about half that of iOS and Android, with 87% and 78% interest respectively, and more than twice the 14% attributed to Blackberry 10, which even had to take a back seat to Firefox OS, which scored 25%.

Appcelerator notes there is an opportunity for a 3rd place player, and while they were not quite ready to crown Windows Phone we know Microsoft has already dismissed Blackberry as a a real threat.
