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.

I think that Nokia owns 90% of Windows Phone because its relative to the amount of effort they put in. Can't remember the last time I even saw an advertisement for another OEMs Windows Phone.

It also has to do with the fact that Nokia has a device at every price point in many, many more markets than Samsung, HTC, et all.

Nokia also has significant value-add, has Microsoft matched funding for carrier promotion, and very aggressively prices their devices. You can get a 520 for $60 in the states.

I'll agree to disagree until 2014.
