A report from IDC reveals the smartphone market share details for Vietnam market. It is really good news for Windows Phone all the way!! While we have earlier reported Windows Phone enjoying as high as 26% market share in Vietnam, the IDC report talks about the growth figures for Windows Phone OS. It is certainly impressive, as the report claims 61.3% QoQ and 361% YoY growth for Windows Phone in Vietnam in Q1 2014.
Another notable performer in 2014Q1 was Windows Phone (WP), which recovered firmly following a weak showing towards the end of 2013. WP shipments recorded a growth of 61.3% QoQ and 361% YoY.
The report also mentions how in Vietnam, Nokia ships as many smartphones as Samsung, though it doesn’t quote a figure for exact market share.
“Vietnam stands out as the only country in Asia/Pacific where Nokia shipments are almost on par with Samsung’s”, says Pang. “Vendors who are looking to get on board the WP ecosystem should definitely take a close look at this market.”
