Microsoft’s Windows Phone has had a slow start, but over the last few weeks, we’ve seen the relatively new OS pick up some steam as of late. We reported a few weeks ago that Windows Phone in only two months of availability in China, had already surpassed the iPhone. Now it appears that Windows Phone has not only topped the iPhone in Finland, Nokia’s home town, but has also matched Android. According to the wireless carrier Elisa, four of its top 10 selling smartphones were Nokia Lumia Windows Phones. Those four phones represented 33% of their sales, which was the same amount as Android, the iPhone however, only accounted for 15%.
With the release of Windows Phone 8 rapidly approaching, we fully expect Microsoft’s OS to pick up even more steam, with added features like support for hi-res displays, faster, dual and quad-core processors and growing developer support, Windows Phone has a bright future.
