Windows Phone 7 (WP7) was launched earlier this year with Microsoft convinced it would be an overnight success.  This immediate success was not the case but thankfully, after some development, plenty of marketing and of course some updates and tweaks, Windows phone has now firmly wrestled itself into the top 3 smartphone OS.  The Windows marketplace is now home to more than 30,000 applications, a figure that has taken them nearly 10 months to reach and has now taken 3rd place in the smartphone battle for the most popular operating system.

According to a dedicated WP7 tracking site, around 51% of available apps are free, while the average price for a paid app comes in at just under £1.  So with WP7 taking 3rd place in the great smartphone battle, this is how the running currently looks:-

1st Apple iOS
2nd Android
3rd Windows Phone 7

Windows phone 7 is not in the top spot but they are ahead of BlackBerry and Nokia’s Symbian OS, which have been around a lot longer than Microsoft’s WP7.  However, now is certainly not the time for WP7 to get settled, now BlackBerry have released their latest BlackBerry 7 OS and Nokia have Symbian Anna round the corner – the competition has only just begun!
