All i can say is that windows phone is growing. Its a great OS. Hoping that MS will have a faster pace in developing features and adding more necessary features. Im a techie guy and i love what wp8 gives me. Btw im using a nokia lumia 920 which is a superb device. Will my previous phone which is galaxy s3 is also great but it lags specially if its excessively used. Keep it up Nokia/wp8team.;-)

I told you a thousand time but gsma censored my posts: Android and Google are evil and must die for a better place to live in. MS is not perfect, we need Ubuntu, Joola, Tizen, Meego etc. But Android and Google must die. Wake up friends!

Brazil is not in Latin America, they do not speak Spanish.
Only those who speak Spanish are in Latin America.

Lumia 710 and 900, that's pretty outdated stuff. How big is the smartphone share in the region? Judging from this it could seem to be quite low penetration.

Anyway, android is obviously by far the biggest also in Latin America. WP reaching second place says more about how low marketshare iPhone has, plus WP is growing mainly on the expense of Symbian. This is Nokia territory, brand loyal customers are upgrading from Symbian. And that's ok, Android isn't all great in the price range of 620 but upcoming devices like Xperia M is making radical changes to that situation.

Stock android also slow. Even using qual core. Mine lumia 920 ie10 can beat your nexus 4 anytime anywhere.

I am using android phone but still I believe the growth seen in windows phone after nokia entered into manufacturing WP is massive along with the quality.
Down the later you can see more apps in windows phone also.
I am not a fanboy of any brand or OS but still this is the truth.

I'd be willing to switch from android to wp on one basis, Nokia produce a slide out qwerty keyboard device like the n900 or e7. Otherwise I'm staying. As for lag, I've never experienced any with the my two devices although I am using stock android and they are both high end devices.

I do criticize people who just follow others like you did but I love to debate with logical people. In this case, you are the first one... I am out. Peace.
