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.

I live in China and I do not believe this at all. I see people, even kids, sporting iphone 4 anywhere I go. China is filled to the rim with iphones.

But I've only seen two windows 7 phones in China, one is my own and the other is my coworker's.
