Gartner: Windows phones sales for OEMs total 750,000 for Q2

Microsoft’s efforts in mobile have downsized and downplayed in accordance with its downsized sales of Windows phones. It’s a trend that doesn’t look to be reversing without major stimuli.

As Microsoft reported only 1.2 million Lumia sales for the second calendar quarter, research firm Gartner believes that the company’s manufacturer partners have only been able to sell about 750,000 smartphones.

Windows phone sales wedged in just under 2 million units for April, May and June. That’s an annual drop of 76 percent. Windows mobile OS market share dropped from 2.5 percent to 0.6 percent.

The modern era of Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile saw its peak back in Q4 of 2014 where over 10 million sales were made.
