Windows Phone 8 may be third in the league table, but we doubt Microsoft is satisfied with its bronze medal. That's why it's signed a one year marketing deal with Telefonica that'll see the world's fifth largest mobile network pushing WP8 handsets in Europe and Latin America. According to the release, the pair will offer customers Redmond's cloud services like Office 365, Skydrive and "Xbox" in an attempt to coax users away from the 'current duopoly of Android and iOS." Unfortunately there's no details on the specifics of the deal, so we'll guess the pair teamed up purely out of a sense of altruism.
