The latest mobile operating system created by Microsoft is performing favourably on the markets in Europe and Asia. After the release of the localized version of Windows Phone and the prediction that it is going to surpass the iPhone by the end of the next year, there are even more good news for Microsoft. The collaboration between Nokia and Microsoft seems to be very fruitful because Windows Phone surpassed Symbian in smartphone sells on the market in Great Britain.
The new Nokia Lumia 800 cell phone was the strongest performing Windows Phone smartphone with 87% share of all sells of Windows Phone. However, despite the good showings on the smartphone market in Great Britain Windows Phone is still trailing its biggest rivals the iPhone and Android phones.
The data shows that iPhone is also performing well with rise of 6% in sales compared to previous period last year. Despite its strong performance however iPhone still cannot match the dominance of Android on the market for smartphones. Further more Android is also on a rise compared to the previous year with 48.5% share now while last year its share was “only” 37.8%.
The good sales record in Great Britain for Windows Phone is very encouraging, now if only Microsoft could transfer their success in North America where Nokia isn’t as popular brand of smartphone as in the rest of the world.
