Reports by  Bloomberg indicate that Windows Phone is about to take over iOS in Russia. In the first quarter, WP had 8.2% share of sales (from 5.3% the previous year) whilst iOS had 8.3 (down from 9% previous year).

The trend of WP growth is set to continue as the largest operator in Russia is backing Windows Phone. CEO of MTSS says it’s not beneficial for them to subsidise iPhones.  Sales of iPhones would have brought them into a negative margin.

But sales on MTSS are said to be twice as high as those from other operators due to MTSS’s influence.
