Here is a big surprise for Windows Phone users in USA.

According to the latest Comscore numbers Windows Phone was the fastest growing mobile OS in USA in the 3 months ending February 2014.

By their numbers  over the last 3 months Windows Phone added 490,000 users, while Android only added 326,000 and iOS 163,000. This is without accounting for the growth in the market, which itself increased by 7%.

Windows Phone also increased from 3.2 to 3.4% month on month and solidified its distance from Blackberry, which is now only 2.9% of the market.

If real, the increase is again likely due to the success of the Nokia Lumia 520 and 521, and we hope the Nokia Lumia 635 will have a similar success on AT&T and T-Mobile.
