                                      NOKIA LUMIA market share grows in Europe

With growing publicity and Microsoft buying out of Finnish Company Nokia, the Windows Smartphone marketplace is managed to make some advances in Europe’s biggest markets - Germany, the United Kingdom, and France.

The share of Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform nearly doubled in all three. In the UK, Windows Phone share almost tripled and stood at 12%, up from 4.5% in the preceding quarter. In France, WP accounted for 10.8% of the market, up from 5.6% and in Germany the growth was from 3.8% to 8.8%. With these impressive figures, we should probably get ready to hear about Nokia’s best quarter thus far. The Finnish company is dominating Windows Phone sales.

In two European markets, Italy and Spain, Windows Phone could not gain much at all. Spain saw WP share grow from the marginal 2.1% to 2.2%, and in Italy there was actually a slide down from 10.3% to 9.5%.
