The folks over at advertising network AdDuplex took a while compiling their statistics this time around, but the data reveals several promising aspects for the Windows Phone platform.
More specifically, the fact that Microsoft’s mobile OS party has some new members.
New OEMs like Prestigio, Micromax and Allview that have been recently announced as partners show up in the list, although they do not register on the scale just now. Interestingly, Panasonic is also in, but that is for a Windows Embedded device with support for Windows Phone apps.
A new Nokia handset also makes an appearance, going by the model name of RM-983/4/5. This is said to be a midrange Windows Phone with a 5-inch 720p display.
The overall market share chart has not changed all that much.
Nokia Lumia 520 is still leading the charge with a very commanding 31.6%. Lumia 625 is at 7.3%, while the fan favorite Lumia 920 has had its share shrink to 6.9%. Lumia 1020 is still not on the list, in case you were wondering.
Windows Phone 8.1 now has 7.7% of the market to its name, but this is one ratio that is bound to increase rapidly as the latest version of the OS is rolled out worldwide.
