WP is doing much better outside of the US, apparently with good penetration into the low cost market, having passed iOS in several countries. All of my family have been using WP for 3 years, and while it has had its share of growth pains, it appears to be heading in the right direction (OS features and apps base improving steadily). I look forward to the day when WP has the market share to be able to get out of the carrier exclusives in the US, which I feel is by far the biggest problem that has to be overcome. Carriers should NOT have the power to dictate features of the OS that users have access to (i.e. AT&T prevents WP from having the Data Sense app). Carriers outside of the US don't have those exclusives, and WP is stronger outside of the US, is there a correlation there?
