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.

surely people want it for the features of the phone and not the OS upon it.. I would care less about the os If I could or someone would hack it and make it work with android... I would buy one in a heartbeat.. Of course you will have to deal with the patent police and everything else M$ could throw at ya..
