Microsoft Bets Big on India, Hoping to Contend in Global Smartphone Wars at Last - Digits - WSJ

A stark Windows Phone reality check
"In 2014, just 3% of the smartphones shipped worldwide ran on Windows while 81% on Google’s Android and 15% on Apple’s iOS, according to research firm Gartner. 
Things in India, though, have looked brighter. Microsoft held a 4.5% share of smartphone shipments to India in the first three months of 2015, up from 3.6% from the quarter before, according to Counterpoint Research.

To cement and augment this growth by investing more in India, Microsoft in India is rebranding around 9,000 Nokia stores across India into Microsoft stores. They will sell other Microsoft products, such as Xbox, its gaming console, in addition to mobile phones."
