“All eyes were on Microsoft’s rather important launch of Windows Phone in China earlier this year. Nokia followed up with the Lumia 800c, released on China Telecom. According to Michel van der Bel, COO of Greater China Region at Microsoft, the company has achieved 7% marketshare in the country, overtaking the iPhone (sitting at just 6%).” I’m raising an eyebrow over these figures due to their source, but assuming they’re true, we get a good glimpse of how well Windows Phone 7 would handle itself in a market where the competition had less of a head start.
Windows Phone market share higher than iPhone’s in China

People forget the elephant in the room. Android in 2 years went to over 68% of the smartphone market in china.
It’s funny to see someone trying to make hay out of apple and microsoft fighting for the bottom of that market.
