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.

Equivocation.

Restructuring was primarily needed in D&S related areas. But it did affect the NSN and Navteq/HERE divisions as well. Just not nearly as much.

It's in the Earnings Reports for any interested in checking.

The valuation voodoo paid off big when they unloaded D&S though. When the phone pins got pulled out the pain magically went away. <(^8)<
