    Hi Paco, It depends on the adoption rate.  Right now it is too low and in fact their markershare just got worse, but maybe that will change a year or two after Windows 10 is released.  Please read this article Windows Phone 10 is dead before it even arrives | ExtremeTech  and this IDC report IDC: Smartphone OS Market Share 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012

      Andreas, those numbers from IDC report are "worldwide" numbers not just USA.  If we make any decision on specific region (e.g. only Europe) there would have to be strong numbers in that region for it to be commercially feasible. 

      Just to make sure no misunderstanding, it is our hope that a third mobile platform becomes dominant in the market.  This increases the benefit of a tool like Appeon that allows you to develop cross-OS "native" apps vs. building separate "native" projects for each OS.

      If you have ever watched any Appeon Mobile presentations you may have noticed we constantly keep a "placeholder" for Windows Mobile: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50340988/Appeon%20Deployment.png  This is definitely something we hope to do, and there is currently no technology reason why we can't.
