Surprising news coming out of IDC this week: http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS24442013
For every four phones Apple sold in the third quarter, a Windows phone was sold. From where we’re sitting that’s way more than we would have expected. Based on what we see in the wild and in business, the number seems like it would have been closer to 200 to 1.
I’d have to imagine the Windows Phone team is celebrating – as they should be.
Also of note, Android devices made up over four of every five smartphones sold. Hefty!
