As noted in a comment by Keith in Janne’s last post, China seems to be responding to Windows Phone. It had previously been reported that there was a possibility that it had somehow overtaken iPhone in marketshare.
Folks noted that in no way did statcounter reflect this. Having said that, it is important to note that statcounter’s mobile OS data is across ALL current handsets in use. Given China’s enormous population, it would be difficult to even make a blip so early on. As such, some dismissed this as lies.
Somehow it has. 2.54%. A random blip in a week.
I can’t actually believe this might be the case and reckon there might be an error somewhere in how statcounter is reporting. It might be a momentary blip. Looking back since January, WP has been making a slow but steady growth in China. Not sure how since they weren’t officially available there until end of March, right?
Hopefully this correlates to Nokia Lumia doing very well in China and NOT the other manufacturers trying to eat Nokia’s ever vanishing pie.
