Windows Phone growing in China?

| September 3, 2012 | 36 Replies

WMPU and WPDang are reporting that there’s possibly a ‘steep growth’ for Windows Phone in China (and thus by extension, Nokia Lumia).

Windows Phones were only officially introduced into the country in March 2012, and one can see the graph tilting up sharply after this.

It is of note that the revelation that Windows Phone 7.5 devices will not be upgraded to Windows Phone 8 in June 2012 has not slackened this growth at all.

Apparently Nokia is reaping the rewards and have taken 76% of the install base for WP in China.

The best selling WP is the cheap Lumia 610, followed by the 800 and then 710.

Cheers Janne for the tip!
