Here are the top countries where Microsoft's Windows Phone is used the most
AdDuplex recently made a top 20 chart that sheds some light on the Windows Phone usage distribution around the globe. The US leads the top, as 11% of all Windows Phone users in the world are reportedly based there.

Next on the list are India (with 7.5% of all Windows Phone users) and Brazil (with 6.9%). The rest of the countries that made it to top 20 are: Russia, Italy, China, Mexico, UK, Germany, Argentina, Thailand, Finland, France, Vietnam, Poland, Turkey, Indonesia, Spain, Colombia, and Canada.

The chart is based on data gathered via 11 apps and games that provided AdDuplex ads to around 200,000 Windows Phone handsets around the world on July 8. Mind you, this includes devices running Windows Phone 7.x, as well as Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 - although, of course, WP 8.1 has yet to become widely used, as it’s currently running on only about 8% of all Windows Phone handsets.

Although its user base is constantly growing, Microsoft's Windows Phone still occupies a distant third place in the global smartphone market, behind Google's Android and Apple's iOS.

Must be a really small number of WP users for 27.1% to end up as "other".

It's a graph of the most total users, not highest percentage per country, so if Chile only has 1% (for example, not the qctual statistic) of total worldwide users of Windows Phone, it'd be lumped into the "other" category.

There is no subsidies for the iPhone like in the US.

With Indonesia is mentioned in the pie, I hope we will get more support from the OS, like maybe Cortana.

Go to System, scroll down to region, and change it to the United States. Power off the phone, reboot, and Cortana will be there, ready to get to work.

You'll probably be waiting a long time, if not forever. PureView looks to remain WP only, especially under Microsoft's control.

Nokia still has loyal fan base in India. They can reverse their fortunes if they take India seriously. The problem with them is they release their products in India after 3 or more months which kills buyer’s enthusiasm of buying latest Nokia product. They must release their new products at par with other part of the world. Secondly, they should keep in mind that we Indians go for value for money & should price their products strategically.
