PocketNow’s Taylor Martin discusses Windows Phone’s advances at the cost of iOS and explores whether WP is a threat to Apple’s iOS.

Superficially, whilst Android has been gaining ground against iOS from a broad wealth of device options from high end to super cheap, it was only until WP and Nokia Lumia produced a family of colourful entry level smartphones with praised high end UX did we see Apple buckle and attempt the same with iPhone 5C.

Martin shows that in various markets, WP has either come very close to iOS or even taken over.

Globally, it could be a while. Windows Phone is gaining traction in major markets much more slowly. But these things tend to grow organically … and often exponentially.

Look at Android, for instance. In 2009 and 2010, analysts (I know, pfft … analysts), predicted it would take years for Android to overtake iOS and Symbian. Gartner predicted Android would be second in global market share by 2012. But it happened muchmore quickly than that.

There’s little reason to believe Windows Phone can’t do the same … or something similar.

Cheers Alvester for the tip!
