More than 1 million smartphones and 18 million consoles running on Windows 10
A few days ago Microsoft confirmed that the number of devices (PCs, smartphones, and Xbox One) running Windows 10 has exceeded 200 million, while the adoption of the new operating system is much better than it was in the case of Windows 7 or 8. The numbers speak for themselves: the ecosystem created around Windows 10 is a success and not only on the PC.
Exactly how much is accounted for by those or other devices, the official statistics do not reveal, but, according to journalist Mary Jo Foley, of the 200 million active on the Windows 10 devices are about 180 million PCs and tablets. According to the remaining 20 million have to share the Xbox One (18 million) and smartphones (more than one million).
A relatively small number of smartphones with Windows 10 Mobile can be explained by the fact that despite the fact that sales of the first devices that it has already begun, the official release of the mobile version of «ten» still has not taken place. After running the official upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile the number of smartphones with the new platform needs to grow significantly.
