Windows "According to Kevin Restivo, an analyst at IDC, the countries where Windows Phone shipments exceeded those of iPhone during the fourth quarter were: Argentina, India, Poland, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. A seventh 'country' where Windows Phone shipments beat iPhone is actually a group of smaller countries, including Croatia, that IDC lumps together in a category called 'rest of central and eastern Europe'." Not bad. Unsurprisingly, these are Nokia countries.

Interesting, that explains why, here in brazil, Android took the place from Nokia while in Argentina things are stalled.
Sad to see the economics and politics of our side country to diminish from what it was (much better than brazil in 80's and part of 90's).

The name iPhone in brazil is owned by another phone making company in that particular country. there are several articles about it here on osnews and also explain *some* of the difficulties for apple in Brazil.

Lovely country btw, i will visit again. But this time i might go to the coast, but perhaps Manaus is the friendliest place on earth that i have ever visited.
