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.

You're citing a report from 2012 in response to Windows Phone turning a corner in 2013?

I know that the Nokia brand being the only reason the phones sell is a popular narrative around here, but its pretty much impossible to tell until the Nokia brand ceases to be in use.

Fortunately, the Microsoft deal closes in Q1 with the new branding coming into effect in earnest around Q2-Q3.

Its likely that until then we won't know with any degree of confidence. Stop guessing.
