WP outsells iOS in 7 and BlackBerry OS in 26 markets now

Microsoft's VP of Corporate Communications Frank Shaw has cited a report by the IDC stating that Windows Phone has managed to outsell the iPhone in 7 markets and Blackberry in a whopping 26.

Sadly, he didn't disclose where exactly Microsoft has managed to get in front of Apple and Blackberry, but it does sound very promising for the company's mobile OS.

Shaw also mentioned that Windows Phone now touts a 10% smartphone share in many markets, an aim that the Redmond top dogs set back at the OS announcement a few years back. However, we are clueless just how successful the WP smartphones are without actual numbers.

Nevertheless, Shaw said there'll be more information regarding the reach of Windows Phone, as well as the cool new features that Microsoft prepares for the platform at the annual Build developer conference. That will take place on June 26 through 28.

26 markets is a large number. In a year's time that number might reach over 50. Had an Android but Windows Phone is simply too good now - I first ignored it but when I tried it I realised just how good WP8 is. Beautiful and smooth. Glad I got a Lumia...
