WP reportedly overtakes iPhone in China with 7% of market

WP reportedly overtakes iPhone in China with 7% of market - read the full textWhile 7% of the Chinese smartphone market may seem like nothing to get excited about (especially considering Android had a staggering 68.4% last time we checked), it is an impressive statistic if you take into account that two months ago, not a single WP-powered device was for sale in...

Well, I don't like Apple, and I don't like their products (too costly and limited for me), but this is not surprising since both Android and WP7 have multiple devices, so in a country like China or India, they will always be ahead in market share than Apple thanks to the high price of Apple products. And that's that.

After using my samsung focus s which has windows software infing it amazing and superior than my iPhone 4 s and my htc one x. I used to hate windows and was hesitant about getting a windows operated mobile but I truly now feel that by the end ifthe year a lot of users will start switching to windows.

Why would anyone move from superior OS to inferior OS?
Android has most apps and games and latest technology HD display best hardware best customizations and custom ROMS ...etc why would i leave all this and go to restrictive features and restrictive hardware and boring UI, Apps-less games-less OS?

all this campaign of WP is to early. Until Apollo arrives, WP is simply no option.After Apollo, all will be different. I would go with Nokia Belle or some android in meantime.

Hardware wise most phones are the same thing inside only external things like camera speakers and a few other tidbits are going to change. It is up to the software and the user to determine how "good" your phone will be.. and Microsoft doesn't have that just yet... I used to use windows mobile since the early days and when Windows phone came out i just quit MS. all the good stuff was taken away. I've had at least 10 devices all android, and I don't see myself jumping into the windows phone wagon, EVER.
I would even buy an iPhone before going to a windows phone... and I'm a 200% Windows desktop user and supporter, but mobile wise they don't have nothing yet.

Every os has its own way of representation. . They hav there own style. . . I think wp has gud ui. . Gud transition effects, but lacks behind in apps, ios s gem, numerous apps, but same boring design, symbian s a all rounder. . It has all, even ui s also very much improved. . . Only lacks behind in HD GAMES AND APPS. . . . Android s only useful for those who wanna play games and use apps. .

Even if they make wp7 to read my mind and do what I'm thinking without even touching the phone I aint spending a penny on it. Features come first for me and wp7 is brimming with limitations to the extent that I don't even find it 'smart'.
