AdDuplex has posted their latest stats on Windows Phone use. They base this on a single day’s usage data using the AdDuplex SDK, November 30, 2012 to be exact.
Let’s head straight to the results. First, Nokia phones grabbed the lion’s share of usage with the top four spots. The phones were:
The HTC Radar had just 4% of recorded traffic and the two Samsung smartphones were behind even that at 3% and 2% respectively.
Nokia therefore is living up to their “special relationship” with Microsoft, it would seem. Nokia accounts for 76% of all Windows Phone traffic, but when considering only Windows 8, that number rises to 80%.
So we could say as Nokia goes, so does Windows Phone 8.
Next up is the share of the very new Windows 8 vs. Windows 7 apps. As we would assume Windows 7 phones are still the majority of phones out there, but in just over a month, Windows 8 share of traffic has grown to 5.2% as shown below.
Which countries have the greatest Windows Phone use? The USA is #1 with 14%, closely followed by that coveted China market, with 13%.
Of course, all this will have little meaning if Microsoft does not grow the Windows Phone 8 share of the overall market, which is now dominated by Android and iOS.
The AdDuplex study is here.
Time will tell on that one. Tell us what you think below.
