IDC 2014 Western European Smartphone Stats

idc.gifIDC has new data on 2014 European smartphone shipments that shows that both Android and iOS gained market share. The other smartphone OS market shares are relatively small.


70% of people in Western Europe now have a smartphone. 28 new smartphone brands entered the European market last year. IDC thinks  Windows Phone will grow this year due to its link to Microsoft enterprise systems. Tellingly, they don’t provide any estimates on this growth.
