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.

Also WP7 Lumia are dumped cheap at selected markets/countries right now.


WP7 phones are very expensive considering their hardware. The Nokia 610 cost $200-300 outright in Australia. Yet it has lower spec hardware than the cheapest entry level android phones.

Australia doesn't belong to that markets. They clean inventory by decreasing price and dumping at selected, not all markets. Reasons are that it limits negative effects, eg on sold WP8 Lumia, and gives better statistics, like outsold iPhone, at selected markets.
