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.

What false equivalence? You touted 19% quarter to quarter growth as something remarkable as far as Nokia is concerned. And yet when I point out Sony managed a similar growth rate in the previous quarter (Q1 to Q2), all of the sudden you want to change the conversation.

LG still managed to ship almost 4 million more units than Nokia on a stagnant quarter (for LG) vs. Nokia's best quarter as far as Lumias are cocerned. I guess our definitions of "equivalent" are not so equivalent then.
