Yet Bloomberg had one of their by lines were Google of all people declared that lumia is fading out from consumer interest.
MS should sue booth Bloomberg and Google for that kind of manure being passed as news.
If they are right so be it. But too many sources say different yet all the parrots repeat the same story verbatim.
It is discussing and getting tiresome.
If you add in Italy, the total population of these 5 western countries is about 220 million.
If we can get double digit sales in this population size, then we are not far off from double digits with 300 million people, the size of the coveted US. .
So it seems that WP and thus Nokia who sells 75% of windows phone is making a significant market in the world without the help of the U.S.. Although I don't think the U.S. will be far behind but it may take 6 months to see significant traction there.
What about UK, France, Germany, Spain, Russia,Canada, they cannot be far behind. Maybe we will hear Ballmer mention these countries in the same light next week. That would cover another 300 million population. It won't be long before we have double digits in 2 markets equivalent to the U.S. market size. Still, we have not counted third world countries where Nokia is king.
If the pundits talk about the US, ignore them , the biggest is always the last to fall.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I hope that 4 out of 5 phones is debatable. Just learned Samsung makes a Windows Phone, according to another user on here. Still, good news. Get the OS popular, people will come to Nokia.
i check it out.
here is what he say about mexico:
Eddie O’Brien, Microsoft’s global vice president of sales and marketing for its operator channel said that in Mexico with América Móvil, Windows Phones make up a "massive double-digit number of their smartphone base."
that with just one carrier, not whole country.
why you do this?
