It’s a new months, and time for a flurry of new Market Share reports.  The latest is Hitlink’s browser market share numbers, which are only updated monthly.

The numbers show in April 2012 Windows Phone surged from 0.42% worldwide to 0.49% worldwide, a growth of 16% in one month, likely attributed to the launch of the Nokia Lumia 900. Given that we expect around 10 million handsets to be in the wild at the beginning of the month, this adds another 1.6 million devices, and suggests the possibility that Nokia Lumia 900 sales may be approaching the 1 million mark.
