Microsoft’s Q1 2017 earnings highlight another quarter of declining Windows Phone revenue, down 72 percent

Microsoft’s earnings report for the first quarter of itsĀ fiscal year 2017 have come out, and they bring with them some more bad news for everyone that’s been rooting for Windows Phone. According to the earnings report, sales for Windows Phone have gone down 72% from last year. While that number might not translate to many units (Windows Phone sales have already been pretty weak), it’s definitely not a pretty figure.

While the rest of Microsoft’s numbers here are more or less fine, Mobile continues to be their biggest loss. We’ve seen a long string of figures spelling out the underperformance of Windows 10 Mobile, and this latest one doesn’t generate much faith in a comeback. That said, there doesn’t seem to be any sign that Microsoft is going to cease development on Windows 10 Mobile flat-out since it remains more or less popular among some niches.
