As can be seen from the table below, Windows Phone share was pretty static until November 2011, and seems to have really taken off over the last 2 months, suggesting that around 3 million Windows Phones may have been sold in the last 2 months.

With Windows Phone expanding to even more markets soon it is pretty certain the OS will continue to make gains over the next 6 months.
