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.

Mobile phones are not subsidized in India. Brand new iPhone costs around $750+. When there are only 3 major OS running beating iPhone would not be a big deal.
Nokia still has good brand recognition but they lost heavily in smart-phone share.
