Comscore has released their latest US smartphone market share numbers, and as usual it does not read as great news for Microsoft operating systems.
The share of Microsoft smartphone operating systems, which include Windows Mobile and Windows Phone, dropped by another half percent to 3.9% of the installed base, meaning of the 104 million smartphone users in USA, 4.06 million use phones running a Microsoft OS. This is around 400,000 less than last January 2012, likely meaning the movement away from Windows Mobile is accelerating, and not to Windows Phone.
For the Nokia Lumia 900 to have a palpable effect on these numbers, the handset would have to sell in the half a million per month range, which may be difficult with it confined only to AT&T, but of course not impossible.
