Latest August Comscore numbers show Windows Phone gains


The latest Comscore numbers for USA for the 3 months ending August is showing some movement for Windows Phone, with the OS blipping up to 3.2% of smartphone ownership in US.

This translates into 4.64 million Windows Mobile and Windows Phone users in USA, up from 4.23 million in May 2013.

The numbers may finally be showing the effect of cheap Windows Phones like the Nokia Lumia 520 and 521, or of course simply statistical variation.

One can not however argue with the trend which is haunting Blackberry, who is now only 4% of the US market, down from 4.8% a quarter ago and 4.3% from last month.

Interestingly Android is also trending downwards, if ever so slowly, reflecting a trend which is also present in Europe, and showing that even that juggernaut may not be invincible after all.
