September Comscore numbers underline Windows Phone US gains


For the 3rd month in the row Windows Phone has seen gains in their US Comscore numbers, indicating hopefully for once that the growth is not just a statistical quirk.

Windows Phone has gained 0.2% of the US subscriber base in Q3 2013, and up 0.1% from last month.

This translates into 4.88 million out of 147.9 million US smartphone users owning Windows Phones, a gain of around 240,000 users from last month’s numbers.

Windows Phone and iOS were the only mobile operating systems to grow, with Android losing 0.2% of the US smartphone user base, while Blackberry lost a massive 0.6%, and Apple gained 0.7%.

The growth is likely due to good sales of the Nokia Lumia 520/521, but of course other high profile handsets like the Nokia Lumia 1020 were also released that quarter.
