Well definitely hasn't significantly in the states


Android regained the top spot as the best selling smartphone platform in the 3 months ending January 2013, according to data released today by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. With 49.4% of smartphone sales, Android realized 6.4% growth compared to the same period last year.

iOS was second during the period with 45.9% of smartphone sales, down 4.7% versus last year. Windows continues to make gains, up to 3.2% of smartphone sales.

Still looking for worldwide

cnet article suggests that uk sales have increased somewhat, but still single figures, rather a laughable title to the article as the other 83% haven't...


Android and iOS could be starting to lose their stranglehold on the UK's smart phone sales, with 17 per cent of current Windows Phone users having jumped ship from Google's platform.

Microsoft has made big gains in the UK, adding 700,000 users to the platform within the last year, according to figures released by market research firm Kantar. During the three months to the end of January 2013, Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system managed to grab 6 per cent of overall smart phone sales, up from 2.4 per cent in the same period last year.

But not really down to wp8 but the price slashing on wp7 by the looks of it...

Nokia's Lumia 800 was the best-selling Windows Phone in the UK in that period
