Windows Phone launched in the late fall and the mobile operating system is not yet making a dent in web traffic, according a new report out of Chitika. In the months since launch, Windows Phone has topped out at a mere 0.45%, a number that is about 100 times less than Android.

The top mobile platforms are iOS and Android, which account for about 60% and 40% of the traffic on Chitika’s network, respectively. Chitika is an online advertiser that compiles operating system information from visitors that browse websites belonging to Chitika’s advertising network. These calculations are based on 31 million impressions across the advertiser’s network between 11/23/2010 and 12/13/2010.

These numbers show that Windows Phone has along way to go before it becomes competitive as a mobile platform. One problem that Windows Phone needs to overcome is distribution. Currently, WP7 handsets are only available T-Mobile and AT&T in the U.S. The two carriers offer a total of five handsets including the Samsung Focus, LG Optimus 7, HTC Surround, HTC HD7, and the Dell Venue Pro. Windows Phone is noticeably absent on Sprint and Verizon, the #1 carrier in the U.S.

The rollout of Windows Phone on the CDMA carriers, Sprint and Verizon, is expected in early 2011 and may help to boost these low traffic numbers. The timing of this launch is critically important as the iPhone is rumored to landing on Verizon in early 2011. If Microsoft tries to launch its CDMA handsets after the iPhone, it will have an uphill battle to gain additional market share.

    I wonder why people can’t wait a couples month before running after numbers. Most people dont understand and see it as a bad publicity and wont go try WP7 OS. All the numbers i see out there were predictable and also very good for a young OS.

    Provided 200 million iPhones and 100+ million Andriod and 1+ million WP7 web traffic of Chitika is nothing unexpected.

    Why is this a news everywhere?

      I found a lot of commenter who really use their brains, and bloggers never! It takes Android 6 months to sell 1 million, and iphone 3 month to sell 1 million. WP7 just over a month. If it is close to 1 million mark. That’s pretty good sales. Why on this darn earth the blogger never use their brain?! or they are doing this on purpose!

  • ok!! so if we go by the sales figures,google says 200,000 activations per day, 100 times less than this would be 20,000 per day for 2 months since its launch…1,200,000 over a million units sold in 2 months is pretty good figure or not?
    acc to this article 31 million impressions in 20 days….0.45% are wp7, so over 400,000 units sold in 2 months….but the latest figure of chitka says for one month wp7 had 1% impressions…..or 700,000 sales ….so that means it sold atleast 100,000 to 150,000 devices in 10 days, not bad for a new platform……or m i missing something here?
