According to some recent stats, Windows Phone experienced a 24% growth in Europe during July this year.
According to Statcounter, France witnessed a 29.8% month-on-month Windows Phone growth, while the UK saw a growth of 18.6% for July.
Still a lot of catching up to do
While this news will be encouraging for Microsoft, and its close smartphone partner Nokia, Windows Phone is still some way behind the might of Android and iOS in terms of market share.
In Europe, Windows Phone still only accounts for 1.68% of market, but at least it's on a steady upward trend.
