Microsoft's Window Phone operating system has been met with a subdued reception so far. The latest readings point to it controlling less than 3% of the smartphone market. However, this hasn't stopped Microsoft and its partners from trying to take more of the low-cost segment away from Google Android. In the video below, Fool contributor Steve Heller and analyst Rex Moore discuss an especially interesting area where Windows Phone could potentially thrive against the competition.

It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade.
