The latest smartphone sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, for the three months to August 2013, shows Windows Phone has posted its highest ever sales share of 9.2% across the five major European markets* and is now within one percentage point of iOS in Germany. Android remains the top operating system across Europe with a 70.1% market share, but its dominant position is increasingly threatened as growth trails behind both Windows and iOS.

Good news for Microsoft - bad news for Apple. Of course, we'll have to see how the iPhone 5S and 5C affect these numbers.

I'm from Europe and I am in those 10%, woo. Just bought Nokia Lumia 920. Somewhat surprised, because from all the gloom and doom posts in the internet about WP, because it's cheap, hardware is good and OS is also pretty damn good once you get used to it.
