Windows Phone sells 6 times faster than overall smartphone market
Windows Phone devices are selling 6 times faster than the average rate of the overall smartphone market, according to Microsoft.

The company finally had some good news to share about Windows Phone picking up steam. Now, Microsoft’s Windows Phone is firmly the third ecosystem, Windows marketing head Tami Weller said at the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partners Conference.

In June, we have already heard the same story about the third ecosystem from Larry Lieberman, a senior Windows Phone product manager.

Now, Weller stressed how important devices like the Nokia Lumia 925 and Lumia 928 are and that developers should not hesitate to code for the platform. We are soon expecting to see Nokia report its quarterly results where that growth in Windows Phone sales should finally start to show.

Let’s not forget that in just two days, Nokia will unveil the hugely important, possibly revolutionary cameraphone, the Nokia Lumia 1020 with a 41-megapixel snapper. We’ll cover it all as it happens, so stay tuned.
