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.

REAL Microsoft Office, Xbox integration, smoother email apps and integrated Facebook are all home runs for WP8 in my book. I even have my Starbucks and Walgreens card apps and Etrade 😉. Along with a hundred more apps on the phone literally. Out of the thousands of Android apps, there are probably 80% of them that are crap, don't do anything, or poorly written. It's tough to beat the reliability found in managed code apps created in Visual Studio for Windows Phone 8.
