2013 was nothing less than a blockbuster success for Windows Phone, which went from industry also-ran to the undisputed third mobile ecosystem, and is poised to challenge iPhone for the number two spot. You didn't think it could get this good? That's OK, neither did I.

Windows Phone seemingly turns a corner with every new application, small operating system update, and new Nokia Lumia. It's turning so many corners it's running in circles.

Note to US readers: contracts around here don't include free premium phones, the Lumia is the exception rather than the rule.

Neither do ours most of the time. For free, unless there's a very special promotion going on, mid range is the best you're likely to get. We're not a land of free premium phones, and our long-term contract prices will end up costing you about 4x the cost of any high-end phone you might think you're getting at a discount.
