    This is what I think of that user generated poll based upon opinion and not facts.

    My favorite news item:

    Windows Mobile sold twice as much as Windows Phone 7 last quarter in the US. 4% market share to 2%.

    Yep, good old WinMo outsold brand new WP7. (Probably mostly due to enterprise sales for running legacy apps.)

    WP7 came out in November... It also had twice as long.

    Doesnt mean that WP7 isnt a good OS though or else you'd be trash talking Macs.

    has WP7 even been out for a full quarter yet?
    seems to me like that would be comparing ATT's iphone saves for the quarter to verizons...not a fair comparison

    From the article
    So halfway through a quarter only gives WP7 phones 6.5 week, throw in Christmas and I think the numbers are actually quite positive in that they were able to garner 2% in that 6.5 week period.

    Sorry, sometimes I get cut short writing a post because of work interruptions.

    Full disclosure: I'm a fan of WP7. Also a fan / developer of WinMo, WinCE, RIM OS, iOS, Android, WebOS and others.

    I think each has its own market niche and OS strengths.
