We've heard a few times now predictions that Windows Phone will be slugging it out with Android and iOS for market supremacy within a few years, but the latest figures show little sign of Microsoft's OS going anywhere fast.
But it has just reached one milestone: for the first time Windows Phone now has a bigger share of the UK smartphone market than Symbian.
Kantar Worldpanel's latest figures show that WinPho accounted for 2.5% of UK smartphone sales in the three months leading up to February 19, as compared to 2.4% for Symbian.
Not that it needed spelling out, but the swing is pretty much all down to Nokia, which went from a standing start to 87% of European Windows Phone sales over the three months.
The bigger picture, of course, is that even combined Nokia's whole Symbian smartphone division and the full spectrum of Windows Phone handsets managed to account for just one out of every 20 smartphones sold in the UK over the busiest quarter of the year.
No such troubles for Android and iOS, which both increased their slice of smartphone pie over the same period last year, hitting figures of 48.5% and 28.7% respectively.
