Microsoft says that its Windows Phone is outselling the iPhone in 24 markets around the world.
That’s cool, but it seems that Microsoft kind of skewed the numbers. Microsoft director of communications Christopher Flores went on to add that it was in “emerging markets.” Basically, these are the areas where budget phones rule. It’s places where people look for handsets that cost less than $400. In other words, these are markets that Apple doesn’t even target.
Here’s a portion of the original TechRadar report:
“Flores declined to give specific regions for these stats, although did intimate that they were in emerging nations, where the cost of the iPhone is prohibitively high for a lot of consumers.”
Well, at least it’s something for Microsoft. Right?
