Windows Phone at 5% in Finland

| March 23, 2012 | 111 Replies

Recent reports showed that the Nokia Lumia scored a hattrick in Finland, hitting the top of the best sellers list on the major Finnish networks.

Back in February we saw precisely that the introduction of Lumia correlated with a sudden sharp increase of browser market share in Finland for Windows Phone, passing 2% in a very short amount of time

We saw this trend continue, with WP last seen at 4%

The growth was not coming from Symbian (which had been in decline in Finland for several years, and in fact grew) but from iOS and Android.

WMPU has been keeping an eye on the data which shows WP at 5.37%. WMPU reckons the sudden rise in iOS was due to the new iPad, though it does still show a decline for iOS. Android too seems to be declining slightly. Symbian is still a steady third, though it continues to descend as it has been doing so for several years.

It’s slow, but seemingly steady improvement, and pretty decent given the devices available.

Cheers all for the tip!
