The Windows Phone is getting a little help from abroad.
Microsoft certainly needs any help it can get, as Windows Phone devices account for less than 3 percent of mobile market share in the Chinese market. Android, meanwhile, has a 72 percent market share, while China Unicom just received a massive order of iPhones.
Microsoft COO Kevin Turner spoke at a news briefing and noted that “China is the No. 1 market worldwide in terms of PC, tablet, mobile and Internet users,” and that “it is a very exciting place.” He added that Microsoft will spend more time with technical support, regular training sessions and marketing promotions.
