comScore – Windows Phone share shrinking. Yes, shrinking.

comScore   Windows Phone share shrinking. Yes, shrinking.

The latest figures from analytics firm comScore are out and the news, based on these figures, is pretty bad.


The figures go all the way up to December 2012, when shiny Windows Phone 8 handsets like the Lumia 920 were sitting on shelves at the height of the festive season. Somehow though their share of “smartphone subscribers” dipped to just 2.9%, down from 3.6% at the end of September.

The Windows Phone 8 OS is being marketed heavily, but this could either be a sign that those early Windows Phone 7.5 adopters have decided not to upgrade to another Microsoft phone or that Windows Phone really isn’t grabbing as many new customers as hoped.
