Next up: Windows Phone overtakes iOS and Blackberry in India. 2nd largest smartphone OS after Android

IDC via BGR reports that WP has overtaken iOS and Blackberry in India to become the second largest smartphone OS.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is said to have been a key driver of this growth. Getting to second place was apparently a goal set at the WP group by MS India and they’ve done just done.

It’s still behind Android of course. That will take a lot of effort but they’re making steady progress. They have to keep Apple at bay, especially now that they’re also targeting a ‘cheaper’ more colourful sector (though $100 vs $550 is still quite a difference :/)

Cheers Dan for the tip!
