Nokia Bets Survival on Windows 8 Software - NYTimes.com

Excerpt from a Nokia pivotal point profile
"Francisco Jeronimo, an analyst at International Data Corp. in London, said there were signs that Lumia devices were beginning to gain market share on Apple and the makers of Android phones, especially Samsung of South Korea, the industry leader.
In Finland, Windows’ share of the domestic operating system market rose to 32 percent in June, nearly overtaking Android, with 36 percent.
One year earlier, Windows had zero market share, according to I.D.C.
While some might attribute the gain to Nokia’s hometown advantage in Finland, Mr. Jeronimo said Finnish buyers had largely rejected the Symbian smartphones from Nokia."
