Another interesting piece of news comes via Christopher Flores, director of communications for Microsoft. He revealed to TechRadar that Windows Phone devices now have second place in 14 markets around the world, and are outselling Apple’s iPhone in 24 markets too, making it the fastest selling smartphone platform globally. He further mentioned that these markets were in emerging nations, where there is no subsidy on phone prices offered by customers and Apple’s business model fall flat.
