Windows

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.

The report is from KWP, not PT. Every other media outlet ran with the report the day it dropped, and came to the same conclusion. That's where my head in the sand comment comes from.

You don't attack the sources, you attack the author of an article summarizing various sources. Very telling.

IDC, Canalys, and Gartner all come to the same conclusion.
