comScore data shows Android losing ground to iOS, Windows Phone staying steady

New data shows Microsoft's Windows Phone market share remaining steady, Android losing ground to iOS

| Operating Systems News | Posted: Mar 7, 2013 2:02 am

New data released by comScore shows that Android lost ground to iOS in the three month average from October 2012 to January 2013 as compared to the three month average from August 2012 to October 2012. Most interesting is the fact that Microsoft's Windows Phone failed to gain any market share.

In fact, Microsoft's Windows Phone actually lost 0.1 percent of the market despite a marketing push from the Windows giant. Of course 0.1 percent is not statistically significant meaning that for all intents and purposes, Microsoft's market share remained steady at just over 3 percent.

 

Android saw a 1.3 percent decrease in market share while iOS picked up a 3.5 percent increase. Blackberry was the largest loser, losing 1.9 percent of the market. Interestingly enough, Blackberry continues to be ahead of Microsoft with 5.9 percent.
