Not a dig H4arm0ny - no need to get so defensive. I know there are plenty of WP users, and not just in Europe - they're pretty popular in the sub-continent too. Of the people in my (European) office, we're evenly split between WP8.1 and Android, and I there are plenty of others scattered about the campus.
For the record, I'm one of the users (and looking to stay so with a phone upgrade imminent), although my Band is the only one in the Office.
On your other point, I do agree. Since the Band works on all three major platforms (does the Android app work in Sailfish?) it should have been tested on all three. However, since this is obviously a poor article regurgitating a poor press release announcing poor research, poorly done, I don't think it was a consideration.
