Windows "All eyes were on Microsoft's rather important launch of Windows Phone in China earlier this year. Nokia followed up with the Lumia 800c, released on China Telecom. According to Michel van der Bel, COO of Greater China Region at Microsoft, the company has achieved 7% marketshare in the country, overtaking the iPhone (sitting at just 6%)." I'm raising an eyebrow over these figures due to their source, but assuming they're true, we get a good glimpse of how well Windows Phone 7 would handle itself in a market where the competition had less of a head start.

... but here is the source article that all of the other echoes in the intarweb chamber are based on:

http://www.emerce.nl/nieuws/china-microsoft-grote-leercurve

As near as I can tell (from what I know of German) it is saying what the other echoes are, that somehow TelePhone 7 has gone from near non-existence to 7% of the market in less than two months. Remarkable!

However the first/only reader comment points out that GlobalScore reports very different stats.

Is the original article in agreement with the echoes?
