Windows "According to Kevin Restivo, an analyst at IDC, the countries where Windows Phone shipments exceeded those of iPhone during the fourth quarter were: Argentina, India, Poland, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. A seventh 'country' where Windows Phone shipments beat iPhone is actually a group of smaller countries, including Croatia, that IDC lumps together in a category called 'rest of central and eastern Europe'." Not bad. Unsurprisingly, these are Nokia countries.

Member since:

Do they only count official shipments?
Most iPhones sold in Russia via "grey" imports.

"Authorised reseller" price for 32GB iPhone5 is ~$1200+,
while it could be purchased under $1000 from numerous internet sites (US GSM / Euro models).

BTW In Moscow I've yet to see _any_ modern Nokia smartphone "in the wild".
