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.

because profitability matters and MS's history shows they will first try to sell their wares at huge price premiums. Then if that doesn't work they start more maneuvering, including cost cutting. The real elephant in the room is android. What do those numbers look like in those countries? It's well known that apple's marketshare is overall shrinking, although they still are increasing sales.
