Windows Phones Outselling iPhone in China and Russia

I know all that matters is the US (yes, tongue in cheek) but two massive countries have a revealing trend. In both Russia and China Windows Phones are outselling the iPhone. China is a huge market. And Windows Phone is a newcomer there. When the iPhone is available there we hear about lines to get phones. We don’t hear that same noise with Windows Phones, but of course, China is pretty far away from the US shores and..well you know how that goes. Anyway, Emerce is stating that an MS COO has claimed that WP has a 7% market share compared to the iPhone’s 6% market share. As of Q4 2011 Apple had a 7.5% market share of China and falling so the 6% figure could be correct. I’m a bit skeptical that WP has already overtaken iOS in China but if that holds up it’s huge. These are two big markets and mindshare leads to market share and it perpetuates itself.
