Default Windows Phone on a roll in China

Michel van Bel, the Chief Operating Officer for Microsoft China, has revealed that Windows Phone now holds 7% market share in China. This announcement comes just over a month and a half after Microsoft launched the OS in the region. The iPhone, by comparison, is currently sitting at 6% market share, while the Android behemoth rules over 69% of China’s market.

Bel is enthusiastic about Windows Phone’s rapid rise to 7% market share, and he believes that the OS will continue to chip away at the competition. The upcoming release of Windows 8 will only help Microsoft’s mobile platform. “We’ve only just begun,” he told Emerce, an online business, media, and marketing website.

Nokia and HTC are leading the charge in China, thanks to the Nokia Lumia 800C, the Lumia 610C, and the HTC codename “Eternity.” Do you think Windows Phone will continue its quick rise in China? Will Microsoft eventually manage to repeat this success in other parts of the world?
