Kantar has released their smartphone market share numbers for the 3 months ending August 2014.
The numbers show a further rebound for Windows Phone in Europe, as the market paused prior to the iPhone 6’s release.
In Germany Windows Phone’s market share is up from 6.1 to 6.9% month on month, in UK its back over 10% at 10.1, in France its also nearly there, at 9.9%, in Italy its up to 14.4%, in Spain slightly down at 4.2%, and overall in EU5 countries its back up to 9.2% from 8.5% in last month’s numbers. This is also a year on year increase, and a promising sign that Microsoft Mobile’s divorce from Nokia has not caused too much harm.
In USA Windows Phone’s market share is also up, at 4.7%, but in China and Australia the numbers remain weak and going down.
