In a recent interview, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has said that the company’s current smartphone market share is « unsustainable. » He, however, argued that their aim is to create a world where a device is of lesser importance compared to the services it can access.

« I think we do ourselves a disservice if we measure our success by just looking at: What’s the market share of HoloLens? What’s the market share of Xbox? What’s the market share of PCs? What’s the market share of our phones? » he said.

« If you think of this more like a graph, these [devices] are all nodes. Sometimes the user will use all of these devices … sometimes they’ll use only one or two of our devices and some other platforms — so be it. But we want to make sure that we are completing the experience across all of these devices. »

It’s worth mentioning that market research firm Gartner in its latest report had revealed a Windows Phone market share of just 1.7%, down nearly 50% compared to Q3 2014.

Nadella also touched on many other topics in the interview – to access the full report, head to the Via link below.
