India could not be in any of those 33 markets. I have yet too see a Lumia phone in any single hand and Blackberry, despite being ridiculous still has a good reputation here ( Z10 scored huge numbers here if anyone remember ). iphone sells big here coz... well.. coz.. it's expensive. Most expensive of all infact.

Very true. I use Xperia S ICS and it take like 5 seconds for the dailer App to appear. sometimes it's not responsive for about another 3 seconds.

It's not like there is a campaign called "Smoked by Windows Phone" that focuses on how fast you can do things on Windows Phone. Oh, wait!

Go play with your subpar quality phones kids.

I had an android phone and it was really annoying always lagging and hanging up! Now I have a nokia lumia 820 and I can say to your blind eyes it's the fastest phone I have ever had even faster than SGS3( I wonder why lol )! I came make everything with it! My only regret was staying so long with Android ( probably because of the marketing...)! Android Never Again!

Where is the news in this? Most of the WP phones sold were probably mid to low end models. Not a surprise those would sell more in quantity than high end phones like the iPhone and Blackberry. Although the countries in question weren't disclosed, we're most likely talking about countries considered as emerging markets.

Unlike some might think, this is not a triumph to Nokia. Even in those emerging countries the top Lumia models are still behind in sales compared to iPhone for example. This means that Apple is still miles ahead of other manufacturers (minus Samsung) what comes to making more profit.

With this news the only winner in the WP gang is prolly Microsoft. This is for netting $$$ for selling WP OS to manufacturers like Nokia, HTC...
