What about Windows Phone? It's far below with just 4,81%.
The figures show similar trends in Latin America:
Among the countries in the region that prefer Android, one can count Panama (80,62%), Bolivia (74,97%), and Argentina (74,61%). The countries with the weakest use of Android are Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Dominican Republic, with percentages from 47% to 51%.
What does this mean?
It means that, as new generations are more and more exposed to Android, Microsoft's relevance will be questioned. If kids can do many things with Android (yes, gaming included!), how will Microsoft convince them that they need Windows and nothing else? With Windows 8?
If schools here start buying Chromebooks (as it is happening in other countries), MS Office will have a tougher time, for I feel it is its office suite what makes many educational institutions believe they need Windows.
