    9.3 Lumias sold is not even half of iPhones and/or Android sold, but the trend is up. W10 + 2015 will be a great year for MS' portfolio (Xbox 1, Surface, Azure, others but specially for WP). After reading MS 2015 quarterly report some of my anxiety went away. MS is doing what is does best, get business to uses it products and no just software but hardware and developer will not have other option than to develop for W/WP and those that don't do it will run the risk to miss big time; so the excuse that nobody wants WP and/or Surface Pro is dying by the day.

    Let's put it into prospective:
    1st : People are talking different a out WP. Alcatel: ?Entry-level Windows Phones work,? provide a ?very, very good consumer experience?
    2nd: Companies are embracing WP: Austrian Postal Service drops iPhones for 1,200 Windows Phones.
    3rd: The biggest city just announced a pilot program where WP and other MS products well be use: NYPD the latest to join the enterprise rush to Windows Phones and tablets to the tune of 41,000 devices

    And this is what I have right of my head. As you can see MS was late and in some cases slow but they had kept a steady push and with the new CEO the push is stronger. I am not saying that WP will swipe the market but it will be notice more than ever and others MS products will help with the domino effect.

    "The costs were one of many aspects of the change," explains Philipp Teper, spokesman for the organization.

    "The goal is a uniform standard for hardware and software and a seamless integration of all mobile devices," he continued, suggesting more Microsoft products may be on the way.

    I would suspect having every computer meeting standards and the productivity focus was a big one as I'm sure their computers have to interact with many different systems. I'm sure ms gave some good incentives too as do all oems for big lease programs

    Most police departments use Microsoft pdas and smartphones. I know here they still use Windows Mobile devices to read finger prints.

    You are totally right, but what made me ask this question this time is that there is a W10 coming that will be push in every MS devices. I will say though every year has been better for wp. MS hasn't gotten the sales it wants but that doesn't mean that wp hasn't gotten better.
