The other day the web went a little wild over news that Windows Phone was outselling iPhones in seven countries. Crazy right? Whether or not the iPhone is king in terms of marketshare is irrelevant, it’s the bar that any OEM or OS wants to beat. So where did Windows Phone beat out the iPhone?
The following countries are just the places you’d expect Windows Phone to beat out Apple.
- South Africa
- Croatia and other central/eastern European countries (all listed together)
As usual, this information comes courtesy of research firm IDC. Reporting for The New York Times, Nick Wingfield was able to get Kevin Restivo at IDC to share the list of countries Windows Phone was beating Apple. Adding some more salt in the wound, these aren’t exactly big markets. In each country less than 100,000 Windows Phone units were shipped. Not exactly huge numbers, but I guess still a win for Windows Phone.
