Gartner: Windows Phone Had 2.7% Smartphone Marketshare, 137% YoY growth In Q2 2012

Gartner today released their Q2 2012 Smartphone sales report. According to them, 4 million Windows Phone units were sold in Q2 2012 up from 1.7 million units in Q2 2011. Also in terms of market share, Microsoft holds 2.7% of the market which is also up from 1.6% in the same quarter in 2011.

Gartner commented the following on Nokia’s sales,

While posting sequential growth in the feature phone market, Nokia’s Lumia devices continue to struggle to find a place in consumers’ minds as a replacement for Android.

Another interesting thing to note in the above table is that Samsung’s Bada sales are still higher than Windows Phone device sales. As Nokia CEO said before, Windows Phone 8 along with the buzz around Windows 8 should accelerate  Windows Phone devices sales in Q4 2012.
