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.

Global usage statistics are meaningless if your business is local or national.

"Nokia and Microsoft Announce Plans for a Broad Strategic Partnership to Build a New Global Mobile Ecosystem"

The keyword is GLOBAL and its direct in the headline. That comes direct from Microsoft and Nokia. Its THE point. WP is a global strategy and so global usage statstics makes most sense if you try to evaluate success/failure of there "New Global Mobile Ecosystem" strategy.

But even if we ignore that, US was and is there main target market... [silence]
