We are continuing with our series of research papers. This one is based on results from our September 2010 customer survey and focuses on Windows Phone 7.
Officially launched on October 11, 2010, Windows Phone 7 (WP7) is Microsoft’s new entrant into the competitive mobile phone marketplace. The future success of Windows Phone 7 will be driven by the health of the WP7 application ecosystem. In order to gain a better understanding of the ASP.NET developer’s attitudes toward Microsoft’s mobile strategy and their interest levels in developing for the WP7 platform, Windows shared hosting provider, DiscountASP.NET, surveyed their customer base. Based on the results of a September 2010 survey, we explore general attitudes toward Microsoft’s mobile strategy as well as our customer’s state of mobile application use and development experience. We further drill down on the results from our USA-based customers and discuss the differences in characteristics and attitudes between the customers who have experience building mobile applications and those who did not. Finally, based on the results we discuss its implications on Windows Phone 7 application development strategies.
