Microsoft makes almost 95 percent of Windows Phones

According to research figures from adduplex, Microsoft is the only one keeping the Windows Phone market alive via its Nokia division. The software giant now builds 94.5 percent of all Windows Phone devices and is still gaining marketshare as it picked up 0.7 percent in the last month.
So that makes Microsoft the de facto Windows Phone OEM. Microsoft is working with global OEMs in an attempt to broaden the hardware base of its mobile platform. Those efforts, in many cases, are nascent. We should, however, see a number of new handsets running Windows Phone inside the next 12 months.

The Nokia assets that Microsoft purchased provided the company with partial-quarter revenue of just under $2 billion, and negative earnings per share for the truncated period of $0.08. It’s expensive revenue, in other words. Microsoft indicated during its earnings call that it expects the division to stop losing money by the middle of 2016.
