Microsoft claims more than 10% Windows Phone market share in New Zealand

While we regularly get market share numbers from Europe, USA and even Australia, its not often that we hear anything about New Zealand, the country where the first Windows Phone ever was sold.

The last we heard was in September 2013, when Microsoft reported having more than 15% market share in the country. Now in a report in Microsoft New Zealand head Paul Muckleston says inhouse and market research indicates Windows Phone has more than 10% market share in the region.

The news is a reminder that while the OS has not seen universal success there are many parts of the world where it has a much more significant presence, something we hope will continue as Microsoft transitions to their new strategy regarding their mobile OS.
