Strengthening its application store by collaborations with software developers and by their programs developed to train more professionals specialized in the field, the company showed the importance they attached to the mobile technology by purchasing Nokia’s smart phone division. While Windows Phone Operating System takes a 3.3 per cent of the market share on the smart phones, Windows was placed third with a 4.3 per cent of the market share amongst the most preferred systems on the tablets. The Windows Store housing over 400 thousand applications, serves to both PC and tablet users.
