Windows Phone has a significant market share in Europe, and a new survey by analyst company Deloitte of 2000 Dutch users has confirmed this, with their research revealing 10% of Dutch smartphone users use Nokia smartphones.

This compares with 23% using Apple handsets and 40.5% Samsung devices.

Huawei 3.8

Deloitte also asked the respondents which smartphone they used before their current handset.  This revealed 20% used to use Nokia handsets, though it seems likely many of those would have run Symbian rather than Windows Phone.

The survey revealed at 49% of Dutch users only replaced their smartphone when it broke, though for iPhone users this number was less at 39%, with many more replacing their handset sooner for other reasons.

We have seen another recent survey of Dutch users who note than 40% of Windows Phone users were planning to move to other platforms. Do our Dutch users agree with both the market share and future intention numbers? Let us know below.
