Waning iPhone Market Share Could Provide Opportunities for a Windows Phone Surge

When you’re contemplating buying a new smartphone, Windows Phone is not an option that immediately springs to mind. However, going by a statement from Microsoft as early as this Jan, it seems the device has been steadily making its way into more and more hands in as many as 24 different markets worldwide with over 14 markets claiming it to be the #2 smartphone operating system used. With flagship devices like the Nokia Lumia 928, 1020, and 1520, as well as affordable ones such as the Lumia 520, 625, and 1320, the prospects for Windows Phone to provide a stiff challenge to the superior iPhone certainly seems brighter.
