The most recent figures from this year i.e. 2012-2013 (the articles you linked to are from 2011 and 2012) suggest that WP isn't doing too well in China.
Maybe my sources are wrong and the projections detailed in your links are correct - in fact I hope the latter is the case; because this means Canon surely has more impotus to support WP if it is gaining strength in China....plus all other app developers:-)

But you should.
Thank you all for your interest in Canon’s Mobile Apps! We’re constantly looking to improve and update our software, however at this time we’re not planning on developing a Windows Phone 8 App.

Canon's stance on this is totaly unacceptable and commercialy wrong headed.
Some rational explanationa as to why no app for WP8 is being developed would be good rather than just ignoring user requests and giviing a Corporate speak non answer.

the windows phone market is growing fast: http://bgr.com/2013/12/02/windows-phone-q3-2013-market-share/
Could be nice to make this app available for 10% and growing share of the windows phone users.

By not investing in a Windows Phone app, Canon is:
* losing new customers
* losing existing customers
* creating negative PR for itself
* decreasing customer satisfaction
* missing out on positive PR it would have gotten from the cheering Windows Phone fans
In other words, Canon is harming its own business, losing money and customers.
