If Windows Phone sells more than zero phones in India, it means they have beaten iPhone there. Jokes aside, iPhone has a very poor penetration in India, and that has very little to do with Windows Phone.
In short, the news of Windows phone beating iPhone is not a serious news at all when the numbers for both are so small.
Why is the iPhone selling so much less in India?
This week, I discussed Instapaper founder Marco Arment’s speculation about how a retina version of the iPad Mini might not be far off. Arment apparently can’t resist taking the next logical step and prognosticating on the rumored iPhone Plus (or, um, Math), Apple‘s putative entry in the nascent “phablet” category. His illustration above shows the graceful, Fibonacci-like progression that would be Apple’s mobile product line.
His logic, which reverses the calculations that Daring Fireball blogger John Gruber used to predict the screen dimensions of the iPad Mini almost four months before it was officially announced. Gruber’s basic insight was that touch screens are cut from large sheets and Apple could merely cut larger pieces of the material used to make the iPhone 3GS screens and wind up with a display with the same pixel dimensions as the original iPad, but at a smaller size. And by shrinking the screen 40%, the Mini would look sharp even if it was not, technically, retinal.
