Windows Phone may reach 12% market share in Europe by next year

12% in Europe would be great, but WP needs at least that much world wide to make 2012 the year they must have to prove they can make it in the OS wars. They stand a great chance.

This seems very realistic... I think WP advertising is more effective in Europe and the OS is received better there.

Generally no,its just Uk and continential networks have in the last year applied massively subsidised prices on windows phones in ordered to improve sales and clear high stock levels

Rightfully so, Windows Phone is a great OS and while no one expects it to beat iOS or Android right now, It should have a healthy third place spot

We sold windows phones in my network shop for month and after selling about 5 handsets in 5 months we got rid of them. We currently have the htc radar and the bloody thing doesn't sell at all either,not down to htc mind,they make quality phone but down to nobody wanting windows phone except for a really specific work related purpose. The bland square ui is just not attractive and many people are more tuned in these days and know the windows os major limitations and lack of apps.
Any Sales currently adding to the above precentages given my phonearena are due to many uk netowrks and indeed continential ones giving windows phones away at massively subsidized prices on upgrades etc,primarily due to need to clear stock levels
