This is US only. Android is doing great there, but winning by a larger margin in Europe and Asia.

Even in daily interests its in the bottom of the list! Even N8 had a better daily interests than 808 back then.

no offense meant, but stephen elop has redefined the term 'mother-fu**er'. it must have all been a perfect strategy by MS to sink Nokia using elop n then acquire it 4 a dirt cheap value.

The report by Nielsen also highlights that Nokia sold less WP than HTC and Samsung. With all the effort that Nokia has put in behind WP, it truly is going to bankruptcy like Siemens Mobiles unless they dump WP.
There may be a shift in MS strategy with the making their own WP phones like Surface with Chinese Manufactures.
One this is sure, Elop will head MS WP operations when he is finished with sinking Nokia.
