Apples  App Store and Google Play Store respectively boast an app catalog north of 1 million, while the Windows Phone store just last November reached 300,000  as of July 2014 .Microsoft is acutely aware of this fact, thinking of integrating Android App in the upcoming windows phone 10

While most  Android apps are compatible, and some builds even sport a working Google Play Store client. However  questions about the legality of the emulation’s implementation and its potential effects on native Windows Phone development have kept the project from being given a green lighty

Evidently iOS is also taking share from smaller platform players in the U.S., such as Windows Phone (which dropped 1.6 percentage points) and others, likely BlackBerry . In UK Android sales have been hit as as it dropped a larger share than in the U.S., declining 6.7 percentage points year on year. Germany market saw Android  sales being hit by 2%Even Android nations have taken a hit,  Spain, with over 90% Android  shows a marginal 2% fall . Australia  it declined by 3% China's Android share dropped by 5%  

This is not a huge surprise, given that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus  are Apple’s largest ever iPhones — went on sale starting last September. Yet the Android platform has had larger form factor ‘phablet’ devices for years, so iOS buyers  seem to  now catching up on their size habbits

Microsoft Surface Tablets Set up War with Hardware Vendors


 
Microsoft’s upcoming Surface tablet could be the first crack in the company’s Windows 8 world. Acer chief executive JT Wang told the Financial Times that the company will have to “think over” its commitment to Windows now that Microsoft plans to directly compete in the Windows hardware market.

“We have said [to Microsoft] think it over,” JT Wang, chief executive and chairman of Acer, told the Times. “Think twice. It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at so please think twice.”

Acer is meanwhile  considering alternatives. “If Microsoft… is going to do hardware business, what should we do?” he asked. “Should we still rely on Microsoft, or should we find other alternatives?” 

The problem is that companies like Acer and its rivals don’t really have many alternatives. Apple, of course, is a closed ecosystem. Only Apple can make Macs and iDevices.

Traditionally Microsoft have relied on their distribution partners to market its software suites and by launching their own hardware....Microsoft  has set up a conflict  with other hardware vendors
