Red indicates falling market share.

While it is not exactly clear what Windows Phone 7 sales are doing, StatCounter,  whose stats are based on aggregate data collected by StatCounter on a sample exceeding 15 billion page views per month collected from across the StatCounter network of more than 3 million websites,  is able to provide pretty clear evidence of what’s going on with Windows Phone 7 web usage.

Their numbers, which stretches back to January only for Windows Phone, shows it to be one of the few mobile operating systems growing in market share. 

While still a tiny percentage of the Android market, there was an 85% month on month increase in web usage between January and February 2011, likely indicating increasing number of devices entering consumer hands. 

Clearly Windows phone 7 still has some way to go, with such growth rates (Android grew only 4%) we can look forward to increased penetration of Windows phone 7 devices in now time at all.
