Windows Phone sees some slight growth in the US

Even though many of us are waiting for the official Windows Phone 8.1 update, it seems that Microsoft’s mobile operating system is a tad under the radar lately. With future launches of iOS 8 being announced, and with Google I/O around the corner, you’d think that things are slowing down for the underdog mobile operating system. Reality is different, as recent analyst results are in, and things keep looking positive.

comScore’s data is in, and there are some usual suspects that we were expecting, like the fact that iOS is still king of smartphone sales in the United States, while the most dominating platform is still Android. Not much change there, even if the numbers have slipped a bit. Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has shown some minor growth of 0.1% in the market, which now leaves the platform at 3.3% for the quarter. Considering the fact that Microsoft’s partners haven’t really launched anything in months because of the wait for Windows Phone 8.1, this is actually good news.

Windows Phone 8.1 is slated to launch some time in the summer, and hopefully this will bring some additional blood into marketshare numbers as iOS and Android offerings will already be in the market.
