Kantar has now released their full Q1 2015 numbers for the 3 months ending March 2015, and in Europe it reads as good news for Windows Phone.
Threema is a mobile messaging app that puts security and privacy first. With true end-to-end encryption, you can be certain that only you and the intended recipient can read your messages. You can use Threema completely anonymously, without giving away personal information such as phone numbers or email addresses. Your messages will be deleted from our servers immediately after being delivered. With Threema, you’re perfectly protected against data abuse.
SECURE END-TO-END ENCRYPTION
Unlike other popular messaging apps (including those claiming to use encryption), even we as the server operator have absolutely no way to read your messages.
HIGH LEVEL OF DATA PROTECTION
Threema takes data privacy very seriously. We store the encrypted data for the shortest possible time. We guarantee that we do not collect, evaluate or sell customer data.
Threema is not only secure but also very user friendly and covers the basic features of a mobile messenger.
• write text messages
• send videos and pictures
• share locations
• send voice messages
• synchronize your contacts (optional)
Threema differs from other mobile messengers with its special features:
• all text and voicemail messages, as well as pictures, videos, and GPS locations, are end-to-end encrypted
• verify the identity of a contact by scanning his or her personal QR code
• anonymous instant messaging
• nobody can read or evaluate your data
• local files are stored encrypted on your mobile phone
The Threema application is constantly being improved through further development.

Nice article –
In this article, I’ll share information that will help you get up to speed on the new universal Windows app capabilities found in Visual Studio 2013, including templates, languages, APIs, compilers, different approaches for code sharing, and considerations when updating platform-specific apps to universal Windows apps.
“IT likes Microsoft and likes Windows. They’ve made a lot of investment in things like Active Directory and Exchange and as a result they have a lot of interest in seeing Windows Phone used by employees. I don’t think anyone is going to be all Windows on mobile, but enterprises do want it and I think they have a strong opportunity when it comes to the enterprise side of purchase decisions,” said Szafranski.
BTW, A Windows Phone version also exists 🙂
… A couple of days old…
Nokia and Windows global momentum continues 04/11/2013 The latest smartphone sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, for the three months to September 2013, shows Windows Phone now makes up one in 10 smartphone sales across the five major European markets, has overtaken iOS in Italy, and is gaining momentum in emerging markets.
The latest smartphone sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, for the three months to August 2013, shows Windows Phone has posted its highest ever sales share of 9.2% across the five major European markets and is now within one percentage point of iOS in Germany. Android remains the top operating system across Europe with a 70.1% market share, but its dominant position is increasingly threatened as growth trails behind both Windows and iOS.
Windows Phone has hit double digit sales share figures in France and Great Britain with 10.8% and 12% respectively – the first time it has recorded double digits in two major markets.
Some interesting figures (IDC & Kantar)…
Western Europe: Windows Phone has 11 percent sales share in France in Kantar’s figures for the three months ending July 2013 (so not quite comparable to IDC’s Q2 figures) — up from 9 percent in Q2 and up from just 2 percent in May 2012, thanks to the Lumia 520 and HTC 8S selling well there. iOS has the lead at 17 percent, but not as large a lead as in stronger markets.
In Germany, Kantar said Windows Phone sales share had dropped from seven percent to six percent in Q2; that seems to have been a problem shipping units into stores as it’s now back to 8.8 percent.
The economic problems in Spain mean that both Windows Phone and iOS have very low market share (1.8 percent for Windows Phone, compared to more than 90 percent for Android).
In Italy, Kantar says Windows Phone has dropped from 14 percent to 10 percent in Q2, but then IDC says Nokia is the number two phone seller in Italy in Q2, behind Samsung and ahead of iPhone.
Android’s combined sales share for Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the UK is 67 percent for Q2 according to Kantar, up to 69 percent for the three months to July; Windows Phone share across those countries has gone from seven percent to 8.2 percent. IDC calls Nokia the fifth largest smartphone vendor in Western Europe…
