Latest data shows Windows Phone holding 24 percent of the Finnish smartphone market

Finland has been in the spotlight today with news that the Lumia 520 has taken the best seller spot across three national mobile operators. We're not halting with that report as it hascome to our attention that StatCounter paints an interesting picture regarding market share in Finland. According to the web traffic analysis company, Windows Phone holds 24 percent of the smartphone market.

iOS holds the top position with 36 percent, while Android is in close second on 34 percent. Finland isn't the largest market for Microsoft and its OEM partners to tackle, but it's good to see the home of Nokia rallying behind the mobile platform.


Unfortunately, when looking at other markets, the data shows Microsoft lagging behind still, but this is a sign of continued progress being made.
