Adduplex, a company that services Windows Phone, has a new report out that states that Microsoft is now making some 94.5% of all Windows Phone devices. The data comes from its July report on the Windows Phone ecosystem, that in July, devices that the company marks as Nokia units had close to a 95% market share. That market share, now belongs to Microsoft.

The assets that Microsoft now owns are also gobbling up market share, securing another 0.7% this month according to adduplex. This means that Microsoft has become the biggest Windows Phone OEM, which should come at no surprise. The company is working with OEMs across the world to open up its hardware base, but to no avail just yet. We should see a bigger effort over the next year or so from Microsoft.

 

Right now Microsoft has a majority hold on its market share with Windows Phone, but this isn't great news - it means that other companies aren't investing in the platform like they do with Google's Android OS.
