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.

Not sure that is the phone Nokia is wanting to sell but it is selling.

Nokia business has always been about selling good phones at bargain prices. They are probably quite content to make $10-20/unit profit.[MS has always concentrated on low cost mass market products.]
