[Softpedia] Windows Phone Is Outselling Apple’s iPhone in China - Page 3

Plus, if we want to go into more detail, Apple hurts their own success in China by limiting the carriers.
iPhones aren’t sold to China Mobile’s 655 million subscribers, which is 70% of the Chinese market.
Yet, Windows Phone somehow claims this as a victory?

M$ is pretty desperate to get WP7 to people. Their actions are proof enough.

Smoked by windows phone, anyone? biggrin.gif

I will say, the Lumia 900 is the ONLY phone that I thought could compete with the aesthetics of the iPhone. Its sure is pretty. I went to AT&T to look at one, but they were out of stock. I generally like most of MS's handheld tuff. Some are great, some suck, just depends what you get. I still to this day will defend that Zune and the software for it was better than iTunes by a wide margin. One day I may convert back, lol. I still have my 30gb Zune

Completely agreed with you there. In fact, the only reason I own a Windows Phone as well as a Zune HD rather than an iPhone/Touch is simply because of iTunes. Honestly, it's just awful, completely unreliable and much less user-friendly.

I suspected that was the reason. Apparently that's going to change soon though.

Yep, iPhone 5 should be compatible with SCDMA, I read somewhere that they under-estimated the demand for the iPhone in China. Apparently, there are about 15 Million iPhone users on China Mobile right now. Users buy unlocked phones and use them in 2G mode.

Heh really?! That's funny. Yeah hopefully it'll support Australian 4G frequencies too.

Any proof that a $100 Android headset has equal user satisfaction ratings?

If price is the culprit then we should find equal results for Android. Not sure if Apple offers any iPhones for $100, so I can't speak on that.
