Re: Old news poorly reported
I administrate (sic) mobile telephony for a large company. WP is very well received. More business focused cost effective.
You are guilty of the same observational bias as I am: what you can see. But this is fine as the same methodology underlies the Kandar report. FWIW I'm based in Germany and Nokia has managed to get a couple of their phones into German TV shows but otherwise you hardly see them.
In summary, only trust like-for-like sales reports and the quarterly reports of the listed companies.
