survey from Fortumo from December 2013 provides confirmation. As the infographic below reveals, Windows Phone only outperformed iOS in 7 countries in March 2013, but the platform has made some serious strides by the end of last year. See for yourself: A huge jump, in less than a year, at that. The United States is not on this list, however, as Microsoft’s mobile platform only has a 4.8 percent market share there, compared to a very solid 40.8 percent for iOS. Then again, the US and China are often said to be the two most important markets, and Windows Phone will need time in both. Some other markets where Windows Phone has found major success recently (like Romania) are also not included in this new survey. Obviously, there are two big reasons why Microsoft’s mobile OS is so successful in these countries. One being the fact that Windows Phone offers carrier billing (allowing users the ability to easily purchase apps). And secondly, the smartphones are much more affordable than the iPhone. With Windows Phone 8.1 right on the horizon, expect these numbers to increase even more.]]>
