Windows 10 Mobile All But Done, Latest Sales Figures Show

Kantar Worldpanel released its smartphone sales report for October today and in amongst the not unexpected Note 7 driven Android slump and iOS growth was further evidence of Microsoft's imolation of  Windows Mobile.

Year on year Windows phone sales were down 50% in Japan and at least 60% in every other territory. In China sales were down an epic 96%.

As support for the platform drifts away I suspect Kantar will stop breaking out Windows numbers in its reports very soon... consumer interest in Windows on a phone is dead and no amount of promises of fancy Surface Phones in the future will bring it back.
