Yesterday we reported that Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system appeared to be doing quite well for itself in the UK, nabbing about 8.1% of market share which put them ahead of their competitor, BlackBerry. While that is definitely good news for Microsoft and cause for celebration, over in the US it seems that Microsoft just can’t seem to get out of the shadow of iOS and Android, and according to the latest figures released by Kantar, Windows Phone currently sits at 4% of the market in June 2013, compared to back in April 2013 where they peaked at 5.6%.
However when it came down to individual carriers, AT&T’s sales of Windows Phone devices remained somewhat stable at around 4.5%, although admittedly it was down by 0.2% when it was up at 4.7% in April. Verizon on the other hand does not appear to be selling as many Windows Phone devices and the latest figures show that Windows Phone sits at 5% and is down from 6.8% in April earlier this year. While Microsoft appears to be doing quite well in Europe, we guess they should really start focusing their efforts in the US as well.
