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?
Apple Inc. is working on a lower-end iPhone, according to people briefed on the matter, a big shift in corporate strategy as its supremacy in smartphones has slipped.
While Apple has explored such a device for years, the plan is progressing and a less expensive version of its flagship device could launch later this year, one of the people said.
The cheaper phone could resemble the standard iPhone, with a different, less-expensive body, one of the people said.
One possibility under consideration is lowering the cost of the device by using a different shell made of polycarbonate plastic; in contrast, the iPhone 5 currently has an aluminum housing.
Many other parts could remain the same or be recycled from older iPhone models.
