“Keith too” said he’s been looking at WP’s stat’s in Finland and noticed that it had surpassed Symbian for the first time in terms of daily stats. That can also be seen in the weekly graph when viewed from 2008. 13.33% for WP vs 13.25% for Symbian. This isn’t the current score if you look at a shorter time span.

Just to reiterate the context of this graph:

  • This shows the whole region (Finland) extrapolated market share for all devices in use (old handsets and new), not current/new sales.
  • Market share extrapolated from browser usage
  • Finland’s population is just over 5 million
  • Symbian’s statcounter data until April was including S40
The next graph shows the daily spikes.

Looking at this on a longer time scale shows the rate of growth has been pretty consistent in Finland. 12.49% current daily stat. Symbian is still ahead though. Ideally Symbian would remain steady or even grow but as seen on the first graph that even in Finland, that’s been skydiving for years.

On weekly average, WP has surpassed the 10% barrier, now at 10.82% (10.85% if looked on a monthly/quarterly basis).

Good Finnish sales is not enough for a country like Finland. We will see from Nokia’s Q2 report how Lumia and the rest of the Nokia line up performed in the last 3 months.
