Michel van der Bel, COO Greater China Region at Microsoft broke the news himself, saying that after only a mere 2 months after launch, Windows Phone 7 handsets already has 7% of the market, compared to Apple’s 6%.
“We have only just begun,”, he said. “Our smartphone and tablet-pc are hybrid, making them suitable for the consumer, but also easy to insert within an existing company infrastructure.
