Windows Phone outsold Symbian in the U.K.

Microsoft is waiting for its investment in the platform Windows Phone bear fruit with an increase in market share, but in the meantime managed to reach a goal, in fact in the last three months with its Windows Phone OS in the United Kingdom has outsold Symbian OS. This news comes from a study by Kantar Worldpanel.

Certainly we are not talking about important issues, WP7 in Britain has reached a market share of 2.5% of sales surpassing the 2.4% of Symbian, of course there is much to rejoice given their small share, but it's still a goal to gain positions in the standings.
Among the products with Windows Phone Nokia is the overall winner with his Lumia 800 has gained 87% of sales, thus becoming the number one brand of Microsoft products. Other countries are appreciating more and more this system in Germany has its share of 3.1%.Here also is the host Nokia, in fact every 10 smartphones of the Finnish WP7 9 are, of course it's complicated now understand the reaction of other OEMs that use this OS, probably caught from healthy competition will present products more competitive, giving a strong push to sales.

Now we await new implications for the Microsoft OS that will surely grow, thanks to two new models Nokia Lumia Lumia 900 and 610. Then is our opinion that the release of Windows Phone 8 and integration with the world and Tablet PCs will lead to more widespread, forecasts for Europe talk about market shares around 12% by the end of the year.
