88% of 12% isn't all that impressive. 12% isn't all that impressive. Especially considering the major number driving that percentage ratio happens to be low-end budget Lumias rather than their "high-end" flagship devices, which would be more profitable to them; as well as saying a statement about why people are even buying Nokia/WP in the first place; rather than just buying something because it's there and its cheap.

You're giving WP too much credit. Its market share might be 12% in a few countries, but worldwide, it's less than 4%. 88% of 4%.

WP will only get better, I would say in about 3 years, Apple will drop its market share by at least half and WP/Nokia will take most of that.

Watch this space.

Expensive doesn't necessarily mean more profitable (though it usually does), since there's higher-end processors, screens, and cameras involved (among other things), plus the R&D for those special and enhanced features over the lower models.

GS4 under 250$ will take Android to 99% marketshare. Same thing applies here.

99%?! You're in a dream world. No single phone OS could get to 99%. Mid 80% range, perhaps, but I severely doubt anything above 90%, otherwise it would be monopolistic. Users crave choice and alternatives, not to all have the same thing, which is why apple still sells computers and Linux is still so popular, despite Microsoft's reigning superiority in computer OSes.
