Windows Phone outselling iPhone in seven markets already

0. phoneArena posted on 27 Mar 2013, 05:10

Windows Phone might be a promising platform with great looks and plenty of fluidity, but sadly with no official sales figures it’s hard to know whether it’s catching up or not…

this is a mistry since iphone is 700$++ where no contract is offered while wp8 can comes cheaper then that so its possible to pass iPhone share in non premium markets

apps dont matter when price is more the issue if u get contract phone its easy but a retail isnt eaisy

Oh come on,,,I've had a Sony Xperia S as my first Android handset,and I never even used the 1% of what Google Play Store has.I mean,I installed a couple of games,and that's all :D I don't need anything else,I can listen to music and use the camera,that's enough for me,especially when I have a laptop which is always with me :D SO apps aren't problem,their number will grow by the time!

Argentina, India, Poland, Russia, South Africa, and Ukraine — along with a smaller group of countries (including Croatia) that falls under the banner of "rest of central and eastern Europe."http://www.theverge.com/2013/3/27/4154812/microsoft-windows-phone-vs-iphone-sales-claims

If u think the sheer number of apps alone determine which platform consumers go for, you are wrong, Many people i know go for iPhone or Android because it is easy to jailbreak it to run cracked apps, and refuse to pay for apps (Malaysian culture); this is near impossible on Windows Phone and BB.

At the rate Android is going, I think everone is going to play third or fourth fiddler to them, like BB. MS might be out of their league in the cellphone market, give a Highend WP device! Who knows Apple might decline? Missing those big apps and those big games along with missing features consumers are having long thought and reps at shops don't reccomend WP!

No one would believe this news WP8 taking over Apple iPhone! But it's picking up very very slowly! Lets wait and see in 2013 Q3.

I'm waiting solely for Q1 2013, and I think a lot of people will be amazed.

Regarding the apps, I'm so satisfied with the 700.000 apps I have installed on my android tablet in my 5 terabytes memory card.
Seriously... I have about 5 apps installed in my tablet that I use in a daily basis, and about some 20 I opened once and only once. At this moment, WP has all the important apps missing two or three major apps that will appear in short term.

Actually, it is possible. If you look at each country as being a market, and factor in how many countries there are, it's completely possible that MS is selling more phones than Apple in 7 countries. Not everyone can afford iPhones, which is exactly why Apple is rumored to be making a cheaper model.

I have to agree with everyone else. I have used a total of about 280 Android apps since 2010. Thats across 5 different Android phones.

Some are Google, some came with the phones.

1,000,000 apps isnt all that big a deal. Every WP user that uses Office alot dont really care....as long as they can get their work done.
