Windows Phone Much-Loved But Still Unpopular

Does the sliver of the smartphone market that owns Windows Phone-based devices know something we don't?

That's all great news for Microsoft, we suppose, but your editor loved his Intellivision as a kid (George Plimpton did the ads!), but that still didn't stop it from being crushed by Atari. Microsoft's market share for Windows Phone is still less than 10 percent -- but at least it's a happy less than 10 percent.
