bada beats Windows Phone in Q4 sales, but WP still making huge gains

This story is for our long lost friend Peter who gave up on our site because he thought we didn't cover bada enough. The fact that we're a US site and bada has zero US market share didn't really seem to matter to Peter...

I just gave a shout out to Peter in the Meg Whitman post.

Like how we are finally seeing some positive sales for WP. I still think over time, it will grow comfortably into third place. I am still hoping for double digit % in world wide sales by the end of this year. I still think any less is a lose for my favorite OS. But, it is nice to see growth. I just want choice, and a healthy WP provides that.

We've now sold 2 windows phones in our shop,seeing as we had sold only one before that represents a 100% increase.......substantial.

Windows sales are dire overall and only received a slight boost late 2011 when nokia fans in dire need of upgrades had went for the lumias.

1.7 millions wp sold over 3 months across a wide range of phones and markets is quite awful when you dissect it. If you divide that figure among say ten particular models of windows phones alone thats only 170,000 for each model in prime christmas season buying,it not a rosy future for the platform.
